FOREWORD 

THE Guide to the Art of Latin America has been prepared as a 
part of the program of the Interdepartmental Committee on 
Scientific and Cultural Cooperation of the Department of State. 
It is a pioneer work, designed to bring together the scattered material 
published up to 1942 on this important subject. For material appearing 
after this date, the section on art in the annual Handbook of Latin 
American Studies should be consulted. 

It is quite possible, even probable, that some significant items have 
been inadvertently omitted, but the editors have made a prolonged and 
earnest effort to locate all relevant publications. Most of the Latin 
American countries were visited during this search. Together with the 
Archive of Hispanic Culture in the Library of Congress the Guide makes 
possible for the first time in the United States the serious study of the 
complicated and interesting history of the development of the fine and 
folk arts in the other American republics. 

The editors have enjoyed competent and friendly assistance from a 
distinguished group of specialists who have consented to serve as Ad- 
visory Editors, whose names are recorded here in grateful appreciation : 
Rodrigo Melo Franco de Andrade, Angel Guido, Guillermo Hernandez 
de Alba, Leicester B. Holland, Jose Gabriel Navarro, Martin S. Noel, 
and Manuel Toussaint. In addition, Mario Buschiazzo of Buenos Aires 
has made available his great store of bibliographical knowledge on these 
problems, and Miss Jean Richmond has faithfully performed the task 
of preparing the manuscript for the press. 

To the two editors a special debt is owed, for they not only conceived 
the plan for this basic bibliography but over a period of years steadily 
labored toward its completion, even though they had several other 
responsibilities.

Librarian of Congress. 



INTRODUCTION 

IT IS a startling fact that no single work deals comprehensively with 
the history of art in the Latin American countries. Not only is 
there no definitive treatment of the subject — there is not even a 
text-book available, nor a summary of any scope. The best attempt to 
show the development of Latin American art continuously from the time 
of the European conquests to the present — Louis Gillet's section in the 
Histoire de V art of Andre Michel — succeeds through touching only the 
highest spots of a complicated history and through omitting whole 
regions and periods. 

The fact that no such book exists is indeed the principal justification 
for this bibliography. The reader must search among a multitude of 
articles and rare publications for the scattered information which will 
give a picture of the whole. Many items included here may seem out- 
side the subject; but Latin American art is an undeveloped field, and 
we must look to authors writing on other matters for information and 
suggestions. For example, there is not one book or article which deals 
thoroughly with the colonial art of Bolivia, although Bolivia in that 
period produced some of the most original and interesting work of the 
whole Spanish American empire. In such a situation, any publication 
which contains good photographs or exact descriptions, or which can 
shed light on any aspect of colonial life in Bolivia, is valuable. In this 
larger sense, there is a good deal of information available in print, and 
the size of this bibliography — already selective — has surprised the 
editors. Naturally the principle of selection has varied for each country 
with the material available in the field of art, and such collateral reading 
has been admitted more sparingly in the case of countries like Mexico 
and the Argentine which offer richer bibliographies of art. 

There is perhaps one good reason why we have no general study of 
Latin American art as a whole. The term "Latin America" refers to 
twenty independent republics, each with its own cultural history, tradi- 
tions, and national development. Although their histories have been 
parallel, these countries have diverged more and more into distinct and 
individual channels. Thus painting in modern Argentina is quite 
another matter from that of Mexico or Brazil. It is true that in the 
colonial period the term Spanish-American can be used literally and 
generally; there is a certain continuity in the way the European tradition 
was adopted throughout the whole Spanish empire, and even in Brazil. 
Also in the period of the wars of independence, and all through the nine- 
teenth century the new countries shared similar spasms of growth, 
imitating Europe, and exploring with diffidence their heritage of popular 
art. However, a "History of Latin American Art", like a history of 

1 



2 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

European art, can be fruitful only if it explores the local variations which 
have led to the national arts of the various countries. Whether this 
art is interpreted as a consistent whole, or as a group of related but in- 
dependent cultures, depends largely upon whether one approaches it 
from the diversified present or from the common heritage of the past. 

Principally for this reason, the bibliography has been subdivided first 
transversely, by periods, instead of by countries. We have found it 
more common for books to deal with modern painting, including artists 
from Guatemala, Colombia, Peru and Mexico, than with Guatemalan 
painting alone, throughout the four centuries of its history. Modern 
national boundaries are not descriptive of colonial geography, anyway: 
it would be artificial to separate the Jesuit architecture of the Parana 
region, although it now falls within the territories of Paraguay, Uruguay, 
Argentina and Brazil. However, to meet the need for national bibli- 
ographies, the editors have prepared summaries, noting for each country 
the material most valuable in their opinion. These are intended as 
guides, carrying selection further by emphasizing the most important 
and fundamental works. It will be found that they give incidentally a 
picture of the activity and the attitude of the historians and critics in 

each country. 

* * * 

There remain for discussion here a certain number of works which, 
although not all-inclusive, are so comprehensive, or so general in scope, 
that they do not belong with any particular country or period. Fore- 
most among them is Gillet's study mentioned above (item 10). Miguel 
Sola's Historia del arte hispano-americano (item 619), which deals only 
with the colonial period, stands out as the best general text in the field. 
Various other writers have given us, through a series of publications, 
the equivalent of a continuous treatment of the colonial period. Thus 
the writings of Mario J. Buschiazzo cover almost every regional type of 
architecture in the colonial period and include some material on colonial 
sculpture and painting (see Index). Jose Gabriel Navarro, although 
Ecuadorean architecture is his point of departure, extends his inquiries 
throughout the Americas. In a different mood — interpreters rather 
than historians — the two Argentine writers, Martin S. Noel and Angel 
Guido, generalize about the fusion of Spanish and indigenous style to 
produce the particular American style of the Andes which they term the 
"Eurindian". 

For the serious student, who wishes to go beyond the conclusions of 
others, a variety of source material is available in print. Angulo 
tniguez's five volumes of Pianos de monumentos arquitectonicos de America 
y Filipinas (item 625) publishes drawings for Spanish colonial build- 
ings from the Archivo General de Indias at Seville. With the series 
of similar publications by Pedro Torres Lanzas and by Jose Torre 
Revello, these constitute an invaluable collection of documents (see 



INTRODUCTION • 3 

Index). The Noticias de los arquitectos y arquitectura de Espana of 
Llaguno y Amirola (item 651) and the lives of painters and sculptors 
collected by Palomino de Castro y Velasco (items 615, 615a) together 
with the Diccionario historico de los mas ilustres profesores de las bellas 
artes en Espana of Cean Bermudez (item 600), afford the earliest 
biographical material. Robert Streit's corpus on the missionary estab- 
lishments, Bibliotheca Missionum (item 620), with its wealth of biblio- 
graphical references, is an incomparable aid for the study of ecclesiastical 
art. The chronicles of the religious orders themselves are of the greatest 
importance, and taken together they constitute an official history; but 
they are usually published in regional divisions. Finally, there is the 
category of traveler's accounts. No travelers in the early days went 
everywhere, although they often covered a fairly wide region. Thus, 
for example, the Relation historica del viage a la America meridional 
of Juan y Santacilia and Ulloa (items 611a, 612), includes Panama with 
the cities of the Pacific coast, and the Lazarillo de ciegos caminantes 
(item 685) of Bustamente describes a journey from Buenos Aires through 
Bolivia to Peru. 

There are no monographs or special studies of colonial painting, of 
sculpture, or of the minor arts considered as a whole throughout Latin 
America. The most impressive work of this sort is the series of publica- 
tions by Jose Toribio Medina which, taken together, give a detailed 
picture of the field of colonial typography, with valuable information on 
the related graphic arts and numismatics (see Index). Torre Revello's 
El gremio de plater os en las Indias Occidentales (item 678), though brief, 
is an excellent foundation study for silver work in the colonies. F. L. 
May gives us a section on colonial laces in her Hispanic Lace (item 56b). 
Exhibition and sales catalogs remain, however, the only comprehensive 
source for the lesser arts — as for example those of the Barreto collection 
(item 740), or the 1941 exhibition of the Brooklyn Museum (item 

684). 

* * * 

The principal writers of the nineteenth century in the new republics 
are again the travelers. To men like D'Orbigny (items 2293, 2294, 
2295), Bougainville (item 2304), Caldcleugh (item 2306), Mme. Calderon 
de la Barca (items 2849-2851), Humboldt (item 2291), Ouseley (item 
2317), Radiguet (item 2320), Stephens (items 2337-2338, 2881-2882), 
and Felix de Azara (items 2302, 2303, 2952) we are indebted for detailed 
descriptions and costumbrista lithographs, which include many monu- 
ments of the colonial period as well. Except for Humboldt, no one 
journeyed very extensively, but from their sketches of specific regions a 
panarama of the whole scene can be built up. 

Unfortunately we have as yet no bibliography of the travel literature 
of the Americas, a study which would be an invaluable aid in all kinds 
of investigations. We have restricted our citations here to the obvious 



4 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

and most important, since this bibliography is one of the first attempts 
to collect such material. It is much to be desired, however, that the 
project of a general and inclusive travel bibliography should be under- 
taken. 

Even the artists of the nineteenth century were travelers. Perhaps it 
should be remarked that whatever artists, whether from Europe or else- 
where, have lived or traveled extensively in Latin America are included 
in our study, because of their indubitable contribution to the develop- 
ment of art there. Beside the evidence of their work, a beginning has been 
made toward critical study of these early inter-Americanists in the case of 
Rugendas (item 2514), Charton (item 2329), Frederic E. Church (items 
2331, 2332), and in Alvarez Urquieta's study of the portraitist, Jose Gil de 
Castro (item 2326). For the official painting of the century, so curiously 
similar throughout the Western Hemisphere, and for its minor arts, 
the only general source at present is in the publications of the great 
expositions such as the World's Columbian at Chicago (item 2288), and 
especially the Paris Exposition of 1900 (item 2285). Even the archi- 
tecture of the century has been neglected, in its whole range from 
baroque through all the revivals to neo-baroque, except in very specific 
manifestations. 

In the modern period it becomes more natural to deal with each 
country individually and to separate the techniques. General com- 
mentary, such as that of Wilhelm Mann in his Volk una 1 Kultur Latein- 
amerikas (item 3071) or Maribona's Macacos (item 3072) is usually brief 
and without detail. The renaissance of Mexican painting in the 1920's 
took on an international character, with artists from Peru, Guatemala, 
Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, and the United States, but it remained 
essentially a Mexican movement and is described in the Mexican section 
of the bibliography. Only a few writers like Cossio del Pomar (items 
4739, 4742) and Angel Guido (items 12-14) have tried to describe a 
mystical "American" quality of style in contemporary art. Useful 
biographical notes on some thirty-two painters from different countries 
were printed in the Pan American Union Bulletin in 1935 (item 3112). 
The only other source of information about artists from various coun- 
tries is the exhibition catalog — especially valuable are those of the first 
Pan American Exhibition in Los Angeles in 1925 (item 3129), the First 
Baltimore Pan American Exhibition of 1931 (item 3109), and the 
exhibitions in connection with the San Francisco and New York Exposi- 
tions of 1939-40 (items 4085, 3077, 3078). In addition we have the illus- 
trated catalogs of the International Business Machines Corporation col- 
lections, in painting, sculpture and the graphic arts (items 3096-3100, 
3104, 3122-3127, 4771). The fact remains, however, that in a field where 
artists are increasingly aware of interdependence and stimulation, no 
attempt has been made to record the whole movement. 



INTRODUCTION — ARGENTINA • 5 

Similarly there is no general treatment of the modern movement in 
architecture, which has appeared throughout the Americas. Only in the 
field of housing, with a Pan American Housing Congress and a Pan 
American Congress of Architects to foster it, do we have any ponderable 
reports (items 3088, 3090, 3091). Some information on city planning 
in Latin America is given also in the Manual de urbanismo of Brunner- 
Lebenstein (item 3085). 

The only attempt to represent inclusively any modern minor art from 
the Latin American countries is the catalog for an exhibition of Con- 
temporary Ceramics of the Western Hemisphere circulated by the Inter- 
national Business Machines Corporation (item 3104). Costumes from 
Latin America have been collected by Dorothy Spicer (item 3107) and 
from South America by Edouard Halouze (item 59). Catherine 
Oglesby's study of Modern Primitive Arts of Mexico, Guatemala and the 
Southwest (item 3106) points the way to serious studies of popular arts 
in the various regions. The valuable publications in this field, however, 
have been the work of specialists and are very local in interest. 

Two reference books should be added to this list before we proceed to 
the bibliographies country by country. These are the pedestrian Who's 
Who in Latin America, now in its second edition (item 3082) ; and the 
annual Handbook of Latin American Studies (item 17) which includes 
sections on the bibliography of Spanish American and of Brazilian art 
and archeology (items 23, 25, 27, 154). It should be emphasized that 
no attempt has been made to include material published since 1941. 
For this information one must consult the valuable surveys provided 
annually in the appropriate sections on art in the Handbook. 

On the whole it is fortunate that we have not been flooded by imma- 
ture surveys of a field where so much spade-work remains to be done. 
If this bibliography served no other purpose, it would be useful for 
pointing out on the one hand the solid achievements in the field of Latin 
American scholarship and, on the other hand, the richness of the 
material still unexplored and unevaluated. 

Argentina 

There are several histories of Argentine art. The bare facts of its 
development are succinctly stated in the Touring Club Italiano's guide 
book to the Rio de la Plata countries (item 82) and again in Jose Leon 
Pagano's essay for the official Italian encyclopedia (item 75). This 
statement serves as a preface to the author's greatly expanded work, 
El Arte de los Argentinos (item 76). This is the general reference work 
on Argentine art, though it is by no means an impartial survey of the 
whole subject, and indeed treats fully only the development of modern 
painting. Even so, there is as yet no other book as comprehensive in 
Argentina or indeed in the other Latin American republics. Similar in 
style and in critical approach is La pintura y la escultura en Argentina 



6 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

(item 78) by the late painter Eduardo Schiamno, which deals however 
only with the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Enrique Udaondo's 
Diccionario biografico argentino (item S3) supplies some of the essential 
facts that these two works lack. 

For architecture, there is Mario Buschiazzo's catalog Colonial Archi- 
tecture in the Argentine Republic (item 85) which also includes modern 
buildings, although the emphasis is on the colonial relics. Alfredo 
Taullard's Nuestro antiguo Buenos Aires (item 81) traces the develop- 
ment of the city through art, and is thus a synopsis of architectural and 
graphic history through the nineteenth century, as is the Coleccion 
cronologica de vistas de Buenos Aires of Guillermo Moores (item 87). 
The catalog of a retrospective exhibition of graphic arts (item 79) gives 
us a general survey of that field. Finally, the series of essays on art 
included in the Historia de la nacion argentina (item 64) shows the 
development of the various arts throughout the history of Argentina. 

In recent years a good deal of attention has been given to Argentine 
colonial art, with the result that it is now one of the best documented 
periods in the art of Latin America. Outstanding is the series of Docu- 
ments de arte argentina (item 772) projected by the Academia Nacional 
de Bellas Artes to cover all the important relics of the colonial style. 
A group of excellent photographs of each building, its architectural 
details and its valuable sculpture, painting and minor arts, accompanied 
by descriptive notes and a historical text, constitute small books which 
are a model for such publications. Practical work in the protection of 
these monuments is carried on by the Comision Nacional de Museos y 
de Monumentos Historicos, whose Exposicion de pianos y fotografias 
de monumentos historicos (item 788) is in itself a good text for colonial 
architecture. 

The book of Juan Kronfuss Arquitectura colonial en la Argentina 
(item 851) was a landmark in the study of this subject. Previous to 
this, research had been more purely historical in focus, as in the studies 
of Quesada on the early churches of Buenos Aires (items 877-882) or 
Pedro Cabrera in Cordoba and Tucuman (items 811-816). Another 
pioneer was Martin Noel, whose general theories on the subject of 
colonial architecture were drawn, however, less from the Argentine than 
from the Andean scene (cf. items 701, 720, 722, 759, 760, 765, 766) 
as were those of Angel Guido (items 13, 711,646-647, 713-715). Studies 
of particular localities in colonial Argentina are the Arquitectura colonial 
de Salta by Augsburg and Sola (item 791), Jorge Furt's Arquitectura de 
Santa Fe (item 832), and the Monumentos religiosos de Cordoba colonial 
(item 854) of Lascano Gonzalez. 

Finally, one must not overlook the work of Mario Buschiazzo, whose 
fifteen or more articles in this field, sometimes on individual buildings 
(items 763, 799-802, 805-807, 810) sometimes on the monuments of a 
single town (items 797, 798, 808, 809) or on some general phase of 



INTRODUCTION — ARGENTINA • 7 

colonial architecture (items 796, 803, 804) constitute a body of serious, 
dependable research, often the best available. 

Other scholars have also made great contributions to the published 
documents of art history. Torres Lanzas's Relation de mapas, pianos 
etc. del virreinato de Buenos Aires (items 730, 731) and Torre Revello's 
Adicion a la relation descriptiva (item 728) are basic tools for the study 
of colonial architecture. In addition there is Torre Revello's Noticia 
de algunos artistas coloniales (item 782), his Mapas y pianos en el Archivo 
general de Simancas (item 729), Enrique Pefia's Documentos y pianos 
relativos al periodo edilicio colonial de la ciudad de Buenos Aires (item 871), 
and some half-dozen documents in Angulo Ifiiguez's Pianos de monu- 
mentos arquitectonicos de America y Filipinas (item 625). Torre Revello, 
in an essay on Viajeros, relaciones, cartas y memorias (item 783) also 
surveys the field of contemporary accounts of the colonial scene. 
Buschiazzo, in publishing the letters of two Jesuit fathers, makes avail- 
able this sort of information about the Italian architects, Primoli and 
Bianchi (items 795, 795a). Travelers like Bustamente (item 685), and 
Helms (items 693, 694) or those collected by Jimenez de la Espada 
(item 611) sometimes contribute valuable descriptions of the colonial city. 

Other colonial arts in Argentina have received little individual 
attention. Useful material is undoubtedly included in catalogs of ex- 
hibitions, such as the Arte religioso retrospectivo of 1934 (item 695) and 
the Arte sagrado y retrospectivo of 1940 (item 780) or of private collec- 
tions such as that of Gustavo M. Barreto (item 740). Silver has 
attracted the most interest, with Taullard's Plateria sudamericana 
(item 742), and an excellent documentary study, Ensayo sobre los 
artifices de la plateria en el Buenos Aires colonial by Marquez Miranda 
(item 905). Early engravers are discussed by Medina in the Historia 
y bibliografia de la imprenta en el antiguo virreinato del Rio de la Plata 
(item 733), and by Juan Canter in the Historia de la nation argentina 
(item 902). Sola's chapter on painting and sculpture in the Virreinato 
de la Plata (item 619) is the fullest discussion now available on those 
arts. 

In the nineteenth century emphasis shifts to painting and the graphic 
arts. Jose Leon Pagano's work, already mentioned (item 76) gives the 
most complete account of the accomplishment of this period. A catalog 
of value for its illustrations and text is Un siglo de arte argentino by 
Augusto da Rocha (item 92), deriving from a retrospective exhibition 
of 1936, this represents a careful choice of personalities and material. 

Both books emphasize the importance of the costumbrista artists so 
typical of the early nineteenth century. These painters and draughts- 
men, frequently Europeans sojourning in America, have left an un- 
usually complete record of the topography, architecture, daily life, and 
costumes of Buenos Aires and the pampas of their time. Much of their 
work, especially the paintings, remains unpublished; what we know best 



8 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

are the lithograph albums and book illustrations, often prepared for 
the European market. Such are the famous series of Cesar Hipolito 
Bade (item 2370), the Picturesque Views of Buenos Ayres and Monte- 
video by E. E. Vidal (items 2323-2325), and Carlos Enrique Pelle- 
grini's Recuerdos del Rio de la Plata (item 2374a). A series of memorial 
exhibitions of the work of these men, given by the Asociacion Amigos 
del Arte, has resulted in a group of excellent catalogs by Alejo B. 
Gonzalez Garafio: Cesar Hipolito Bade (item 2369), Acuarelas de E. E. 
Vidal (item 2385), Carlos Morel (item 2340), Carlos E. Pellegrini (items 
2339, 2352), Juan Leon Palliere (item 2341), Juan Mauricio Rugendas 
(item 2342) and Prilidiano Pueyrredon (item 2343). Attention should 
also be called to the facsimile of Vidal 's Picturesque Illustrations (item 
2324) and the album of hitherto unpublished watercolors, Quince 
acuarelas ineditas de E. E. Vidal (item 2411). 

That no American country is at present more active in art than 
Argentina is witnessed by their annual publication Anuario Pldstica 
(item 3154) which since 1939 has published a survey of the whole year 
in art. Museums, schools of art, and societies of art throughout the 
country are listed, exhibitions are listed, and those of importance are 
reviewed. Natural complements to this directory are the catalogs of 
the national Salon de Artes Plasticas (items 3161-3163) the Salon de 
Otofio of Buenos Aires (item 3236) and the annual Salons of Rosario 
(items 3218-3220) and Santa Fe (item 3227). The catalog of a carefully 
selected collection of Argentine art sent to the Virginia Museum of Fine 
Arts in 1940 (item 3239) is useful for its biographical data on some forty 
painters, sculptors, and graphic artists. 

A long felt need for monographs on outstanding contemporary artists 
of Argentina is now being met by three series of publications, the 
Monografias de arte americano; serie argentina (item 72a), the Coleccion 
artistas argentinos (item 3173) and the Monografias de artistas argentinos 
(item 72b). Each of these gives a series of illustrations, a biographical 
note, and a short critical text — a formula which could be applied fruitfully 
all through the Americas. Among them are studies on Bernaldo de Quiros 
(item 3342), on Antonio Berni (item 3340), Pettoruti (item 3363), Quin- 
quela Martin (item 3371), on the impressionist Fernando Fader (item 
3419) and on Yrurtia (item 3471). 

In minor arts Argentina has shown little interest, though a book by 
Canal Feijoo Ensayo sobre la expresion popular artistica en Santiago 
(item 3331) shows what may be done. Similarly, a publication of the 
Doctor Gabriel Carrasco Experimental School, El niiio y su expresion 
(item 3310) contains an excellent essay by Olga Cossettini on art educa- 
tion, illustrated with children's paintings. In the field of architecture 
a series of publications on town-planning, and special Argentine prob- 
lems, notably by Angel Guido (items 3251-3253) are balanced by theo- 
retical writing on the meaning of American style (items 50, 51, 30S7, 



INTRODUCTION — BOLIVIA • 9 

3263, 3264). Publications of actual buildings in the modern style are 
rarer (items 3243, 3244, 3248, 3261). 

Bolivia 

The art of colonial Bolivia is especially interesting, from the point of 
view of the fusion of Spanish and Indian elements of style. The rich 
heritage of local baroque architecture will sometime be studied as it 
deserves, but at present there is no single study tracing its evolution, 
nor even sufficient published material from which such a study could 
be made. There are certain documents available, in such general 
collections as the Archivo boliviano edited by Ballivian y Rojas (item 
915), and Rene-Moreno's Biblioteca boliviano (item 922a). Important 
plans and drawings, especially for the city of Potosi, are included in 
Angulo Iniguez's Pianos de monumentos arquitectbnicos de America y 
Filipinas (item 625), and also in the Relation de mapas, pianos, etc. del 
virreinato de Buenos Aires published by Torres Lanzas and continued 
by Torre Revello (items 730-731). In fact colonial Bolivia, or Alto 
Peril as it was called in the days of the Viceroyalty, can hardly be con- 
sidered distinct from Peru, or from the eastern slopes of the Andes 
which are now Argentine territory. Thus the ecclesiastical reports, the 
travelers' accounts, and the histories of colonial Peru should all be 
noted. Travelers customarily crossed the continent through the region 
of Lake Titicaca, in colonial times as well as in the nineteenth century. 
Among them are Bustamante (item 685), Helms (item 693), Lizarraga 
(items 697-699), and in the nineteenth century Castelnau (item 2307), 
Orbigny (items 2293-2295), and Meyendorff (item 700). 

Since the national divisions cut across existing cultures, most modern 
critics and historians of colonial art have concerned themselves with a 
general Andean, rather than a Peruvian or Bolivian style. The theories 
of Martin Noel on indigenous influence in architecture and in archi- 
tectural decoration (items 718, 719, 723), and even more specifically 
those of Angel Guido (items 710-717) are based largely on a study of 
Bolivian monuments. Bolivian colonial art was first touched upon for 
the international art public in a brief article by Leon Kochnitzky (item 
1094). Since then the most serious contributions have come from 
Mario Buschiazzo (items 925-928), and such illustrated volumes as 
Genaro Ibanez's Potosi (item 938), Max Joseph von Vacano's Bolivia, su 
desarollo y progreso (item 940) or Potosi, la ciudad unica by Molins 
(item 921). Perhaps the best general treatment of the period is Finot's 
La cultura colonial espaiiola en el Alto Peru (item 916). 

General information on Bolivia, with a good many illustrations, is 
provided by Marie Robinson Wright's Bolivia, the Central Highway of 
South America (item 97). Excellent photographs will be found in 
Gerstmann's Bolivia (item 3479), and color photographs, especially of 
the costume of today, in the National Geographic Magazine (item 3480). 



10 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

For the interesting group of contemporary artists, who, true to their 
heritage, are exploring indigenous themes, very little material is avail- 
able (items 3482-3487). In the field of sculpture there is a good article 
on Marina Nunez del Prado by Jane Watson (item 3490). Otherwise 
the magazine Bolivia has proved the best source of information on current 
artistic activity, with articles such as A Bolivian Artist and Innovator; 
Roberto Guardia Berdecio (item 3483). 

Brazil 

At first glance it may seem that relatively little material of the first 
importance exists for the study of Brazilian art. But it should be borne 
in mind that thanks to the establishment of the remarkable Servico do 
Patrimonio Historico e Artistico Nacional in 1937, interest in the subject 
has been enormously stimulated with a subsequent research production 
of unusually high value. The four volumes of S.P.H.A.N.'s Revista 
published between 1937 and 1941, have set a high standard of careful 
work and presentation in various periods of Brazilian art which is 
already bearing fruit in the form of other monographs on special subjects. 

The Pequena Historia das Aries Pldsticas (item 145) of Carlos Rubens 
is the most complete statement on Brazilian art to date, but suffers the 
serious disadvantage of having no illustrations. Besides this and an 
abbreviated account in the Enciclopedia italiana (item 99), there are 
only a few interpretive essays, brief and not entirely representative, to 
tell the development of Brazilian art. The best of these is Mario de 
Andrade's brilliant and little known resume Las artes pldsticas en el 
Brasil for La Nacion of Buenos Aires (item 101). Others are by Ronald 
de Carvalho (item 108), Raul Pedroza (item 134) and Robert C. Smith 
(item 153). Angelo Guido has traced the growth of art in Rio Grande 
do Sul in his Artes Pldsticas no Rio Grande do Sul (item 127), while 
Manuel Querino has written on the artists of Baia (items 138, 3514). 

For the study of early painting there are the source writings of Manoel 
Araujo Porto-Alegre : the Iconografia Brazileira (item 136) and the 
Memoria sobre a antiga escola de pintura fluminense (item 198). A. A I. 
CorreVs Terra Carioca: Fontes e Chafarizes (item 205) is a very well 
written and accurate account of fountain sculpture in Rio de Janeiro 
in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Lucio Costa has sketched 
the history of Brazilian furniture (item 183) and Francisco Marques 
dos Santos has opened the study of Brazilian silversmiths (items 189, 
2595). Photographs and descriptions of works of art of a variety of 
periods are to be found in the catalog of the paintings of the Escola 
Nacional de Belas Artes (item 139) and that of the sale of the collection 
of Djalma da Fonseca Hermes (item 111) as well as in numerous 
articles of Ilustracao Brasileira. 

The volume Arte Colonial Brasileira (item 983) of Anibal Mattos is 
with its large number of reproductions a serviceable introduction to the 



INTRODUCTION — BRAZIL • 11 

art of the colonial period, although it is far from complete, and inac- 
curate in places. The architecture of the two richest centers of colonial 
artistic development, Baia and Minas Gerais, is presented in monographs 
by Edgar Cerqueira Falcao, Reliquias da Bahia (item 964) and Robert 
C. Smith, The Colonial Architecture of Minas Gerais in Brazil (item 
1 162), Lucio Costa's long paper on the church architecture of the Jesuits 
published in the Revista do Servico do Patrimonio Historico e Artistico 
Nacional (item 1052) deals effectively with an important category of 
colonial construction. 

Other articles in the yearbook of this important organization consti- 
tute the best single group of material for research in this field and are 
complemented by special monographs like items 947, 991, 1035 pub- 
lished by S.P.H.A.N. 

Among these are included the researches of Luis Jardim on colonial 
painting (items 1219 and 1220) the special study of Nair Batista on the 
painters of Rio de Janeiro (item 1213) which is paralleled by the Artistas 
do Rio Colonial of Francisco Marques dos Santos (item 1227). The 
seventeenth century Dutch painters of Pernambuco have been studied 
by Robert C. Smith in Brazilian Landscapes of Frans Post (item 1229), 
in Frans Post; Sens Qtiadros Brasileiros by Joaquim de Souza-Leao 
(item 1232a), and by Thomas Thomsen in Albert Eckhout, ein Nieder- 
landischer Maler und Sein Gonner Moritz der Brasilianer (item 1236). 
Aleijadinho, the one colonial sculptor on whom adequate information is 
available, is represented by three important essays, each written from a 
different approach. Rodrigo Melo Franco de Andrade's Contribuicdo 
para o Estudo da Obr a do Aleijadinho (item 1240); Tracos Bibliograficos 
Relativos ao Finado Antonio Francisco Lisboa (item 1244) by Rodrigo 
Jose Ferreira Bretas; and Theofilo Feu de Carvalho's Aleijadinho 
(item 1246). 

There are a number of classic works on the painting and sculpture of 
the nineteenth century that are to be regarded as source material: Arte 
Brasileira of L. Gonzaga Duque-Estrada (item 2460), Henrique Coelho 
Netto's Bellas Artes (item 2603), and the publications of Laudelino 
Freire (items 196, 2463, 2609). 

Colored reproductions of many paintings mentioned in the books are 
included in the collection of plates edited by Francisco Acquarone and 
A. de Queiroz Vieira entitled Primores da Pintura no Brasil (item 2599). 
All of these publications concentrate on the second half of the nineteenth 
century. For the earlier period several studies are recommended. 
Francisco Marques dos Santos's Ambiente Artistico Fluminense (item 
2635) discusses the personalities of the first decade. The French 
Mission of 1816 is quite thoroughly treated by Afonso de E. Taunay 
(items 2544, 2646) and its production is well illustrated in the catalog 
of a recent exhibition Exposigao da Missao- Artistica Francesa (item 
2508). One of the members of the mission, Jean-Baptiste Debret, has 

738285—48—2 



12 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

left his own record in three volumes of lithographs of Rio de Janeiro, 
the famous Voyage pittoresque et historique au Bresil (items 2452, 2453), 
which should be compared with the other costumbrista scenes of J. M. 
Rugendas (items 2513, 2514) and Victor Frond (items 2503, 2504) in 
the Bresil Pittoresque of Charles Ribeyrolles. Senhor Santos completes 
the picture with his study of the arts under D. Pedro I (item 2532). 
Manuel Duarte Moreira de Azevedo's Pequeno Panorama (item 2557) 
has information on the architecture of the period. 

In spite of the great achievement of modern Brazilian artists during 
the last few years there is no published account of their work as a whole. 
Salon catalogs and articles on the official yearly exhibitions of Sao 
Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are useful for reproductions and occasional 
biographical detail in relation to the academic painters and sculptors 
(items 107, 2638, 2639, 3533-3535). 

The progressive group which centers in Sao Paulo can best be studied 
in the catalogs and publications of the now defunct Salao de Maio 
(items 3515, 3535) and in the pages of the magazine Planalto, which 
was published during 1941. Candido Portinari, the best known Bra- 
zilian painter today, is best represented in the monograph Portinari, 
his Life and Art published in English by the Chicago University Press 
(item 3683) the Revista Academica s special issue Homenagem a Porti- 
nari (item 3643) and the official catalog of his exhibition of 1939 
(item 3609). For Tarsila do Amaral, a pioneer modern painter of Sao 
Paulo, there is another special issue of the Revista Academica (item 
3644). Lasar Segall has a handsome monograph by Paul Fierens 
(item 3632). Among the outstanding critics of modern art in Brazil 
are Sergio Milliet (items 3663, 3665), Luis Martins (items 3506, 3657, 
3658) and Lourival Gomes Machado (items 3505, 3654). 

Some idea of contemporary architecture may be had from the well 
illustrated articles of Arquitetura e Urbanismo (items 3548, 3551, 3555). 

Chile 

There is no publication which treats of Chilean art as a whole in any 
satisfactory fashion. The best general summary is perhaps the chapter 
devoted to the fine arts in Huneeus Gana's Cuadro historico de la 
produccion intelectual de Chile (item 211). A short essay by Giraldo 
Jaramillo, Panorama de la pintura en Chile (item 236), and the catalog 
of a retrospective private collection by Alvarez Urquieta (item 235) 
might serve as points of departure for a study of painting, which has 
always been Chile's principal art. 

The colonial period, while not actually neglected, has hardly received 
the attention it deserves. On architecture the best study is the recent 
publication of Benavides Rodriguez, La arquitectura en el virreinato 
del Peru y la capitania de Chile (item 708). Ernesto Greve's Historia 
de la ingenieria en Chile (item 1277) gives some documents and illustra- 



INTRODUCTION — CHILE • 13 

tions as well as a study of methods of construction. Along with these 
books, Stecchi's Arquitectura en Santiago (item 1280) should be con- 
sulted for its plans and fine architectural drawings of buildings and 
their details. A single monograph on the neo-classic architect, Toesca, 
is the work of Roberto Toro Toro (item 1282). Finally, one must not 
neglect the Relation descriptive de los mapas, pianos, etc. del virreinato 
del Peru of Torres Lanzas (item 732) and Angulo Iniguez's Pianos de 
monumentos arquitectdnicos de America y Filipinas (item 625), both of 
which include colonial plans and elevations for Chilean buildings. 
General publications of documents, such as those of the Archivo del 
Arzobispado of Santiago (item 1272c) are also available. 

For colonial painting, Alvarez Urquieta's essay, La pintura en Chile 
durante el periodo colonial (item 1288), is the key work. The one study 
of a colonial sculptor, Mandiola's Apuntes sobre la vida y obras de 
Andia y Varela (item 1290) is marred by its lack of illustrations. The 
minor arts have been rather more fortunate, with an essay on silverwork 
by Fontecilla Larrain (item 1283), and a pair of very important articles 
by Marquez de la Plata on Los trajes en Chile (item 1285) and Los 
muebles en Chile durante los siglos XVI, XVII y XVIII (item 1284). 

It is characteristic of the nineteenth century in Chile that the Museum 
of Fine Arts and the School of Fine Arts (items 225, 226) were founded 
then, and that Pedro Lira in 1866 published a thoughtful survey of 
Chile's cultural history, Las bellas artes en Chile (item 212). In Jose 
Miguel Blanco, Santiago possessed one of the most prolific of art 
critics; through his writings in the Taller ilustrado and many other 
periodicals one can follow the whole scene of the second half of the 
century, and thanks to the efforts of Chilean bibliographers, this in- 
formation is not hard to come by (item 2682). A valuable resume of 
this whole period is given by Richon-Brunet in the catalog to the Chilean 
Exposition International de Bellas Artes of 1910 (item 2687); another 
catalog which deals principally with the nineteenth century artists, 
giving valuable biographical notes, is the 1922 Catdiogo general of the 
Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago (item 218). The fullest interpretive 
statement is La pintura en Chile by Armando Robles Rivera (item 2751). 

The other group of artists typical of the nineteenth century, the 
costumbristas, lithographers, and provincial portraitists who represent 
popular rather than official art, are fortunately prolific in Chile. Alva- 
rez Urquieta has contributed good biographies of the English land- 
scapist Carlo* Chatworthy Wood Taylor (item 2713) and the Peruvian 
portrait painter who worked so much in Chile, Jose Gil de Castro (item 
2326). Other articles deal with Tomas Somerscales (item 2712) and 
Monvoisin (item 2714). Most of these artists speak for themselves 
in the lithographs of their illustrated books and albums, foremost among 
them the atlas appended to Claude Gay's Historia de Chile (item 2709). 
Other interesting illustrations appear in the books of Bougainville (item 



14 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

2304), Davie (item 23 If), Schmidtmeyer (item 2688) in Tornero's guide 
book (item 2689) and in Maria Graham Callcott's Journal of a Residence 
in Chile (item 2678). Among those who give useful descriptions are 
Caldcleugh (item 23C6, 2677), Conder (item 2308), Orbigny (item 2316), 
Radiguet (item 2320), and Stevenson (item 2322). A fine collection 
of costumbrista illustrations Imdgenes de Chile has been made by Feliii 
Cruz and Picon-Salas (item 2681). 

Perhaps the most significant development in the Chilean scene in our 
day is the emergence of the Escuela de Artes Aplicadas, and the conse- 
quent interest in minor arts (items 3104, 3752, 3753, 3764, 3769, 3771). 
A series of studies of Araucanian crafts is also of great interest, notably 
the great publication of the Museo de Etnologia y Antropologia de 
Chile, Album de tejidos y alfareria araucana, by Aureliano Oyarzun 
and Ricardo E. Latcham (item 234). Brother Claude-Joseph's studies 
of La plateria araucana (item 229) and Los tejidos araucanos (item 230) 
will also be found useful. 

For contemporary art in Chile, the best source is the Revista de arte 
of Santiago, which furnishes current news of the art-world and critical 
articles. There is no book on twentieth century painting, sculpture, 
or the graphic arts; such essays as Lorenzo Dominguez's Algo acerca de 
nuestra escultura (item 3796) or Ana Cortes' Ensayo para una resena 
de la historia del affiche en Chile (item 3761) serve to supply this lack. 
Perhaps the best summary of contemporary painting in Chile available 
before 1942 was the review of an exhibition in Argentina, by Julio 
Rinaldini (item 3789); Chilean painting is also included in the Golden 
Gate International Exposition catalog (item 3148). On the subject of 
architecture, there is almost no material, aside from a series of articles 
on the planning problems of Santiago in the Revista de arte, and some 
discussions of low-cost housing. 

Colombia 

9 

By publishing a volume entitled Iniciacion de una guia de arte 
colombiana (item 239) the Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes of 
Colombia has shown itself aware of the responsibility inherent in the 
rich cultural tradition of that country. The catalogs of churches and 
museum collections and the assembling here of information on all periods 
since the conquest make this an invaluable volume. Various publica- 
tions in connection with the recent centennial celebrations, albums, and 
collections of descriptive essays, serve the same purpose (items 243, 
258, 259, 1295, 1302, 1329) as does Roberto Cortazar's catalog of monu- 
ments in Bogota (item 245a). An article by Alfredo Ortega Arquitectura 
de Bogota (item 266) is the best general treatment of architectural history 
in Colombia; Pizano Obregon's La catedral de Bogota (item 268) also 
covers almost the whole history, through the documentary study of a 
single building. Perhaps the most stimulating succinct introduction 



INTRODUCTION — COLOMBIA • 15 

to the subject is the group of lectures by Samper Ortega, Colombia, 
Breve resena de su movimiento artistico e intellectual (item 257). 

The foremost work on the colonial period is the Teatro del arte 
colonial (item 1297) of Guillermo Hernandez de Alba, which deals with 
architecture, painting and sculpture. Important source material has 
been published by Angulo Ifliguez in the Pianos de monumentos arqui- 
tectonicos de America y Filipinas (item 625). Good general articles on 
architecture are those by Mario Buschiazzo on La arquitectura colonial 
en Colombia (item 1312), Cristobal Bernal's El arte arquitectonico espanol 
en el Nuevo Reino de Granada (item 1308) and George Grupp's careful 
study The Churches of Bogota (item 1317). Monographs on single build- 
ings in Bogota and elsewhere will be found in items 1306, 1307, 1318, 1328. 

Among the colonial painters practically the whole bibliography is 
given over to Gregorio Vasquez Arce y Ceballos. The monograph by 
Robert Pizano Restrepo (item 1360) is perhaps the most impressive 
study of a single artist in all the Latin American field. It also includes 
material on other painters of the seventeenth century. Miguel de 
Santiago is treated in an article by Giraldo Jaramillo (item 746a), and 
Antonio de la Cruz in two articles (items 1347, 1349), while several deal 
with the seventeenth century group (items 1356, 1357, 1361, 1362). A 
humbler but extremely interesting group of painters associated primarily 
with Colombia, the famous Expedicion Botanica led by Jose Celestino 
Mutis, is touched upon in items 745, 746, 748, 749. 

On sculpture we have an interesting little monograph by Luis Alberto 
Acufia Ensayo sobre el florecimiento de la escultura (items 1366, 1367) 
and studies of the retable of San Francisco (items 1302, 1368, 1369). 
Medina has contributed a study of colonial printing (item 1301). 
Minor arts, however, except as they come into the architectural sphere 
or are indexed among the furnishings of churches in the Iniciacion de 
una guia (item 239) have received little attention. The catalog of a 
South American collection gathered by the Brooklyn Institute of Arts 
and Sciences (item 684) might prove useful. 

In the late nineteenth century Colombia passed into a period of con- 
siderable cultural activity. The bibliography indicates how much of 
the credit for this is owing to General Alberto Urdaneta (items 244, 
246, 2766, 2769a, 2772, 2774, 2775). Painting was, characteristically, 
the important art of the day, with Ricardo Acevedo Bernal (items 2778, 

2779, 2782) and Epifanio Garay (item 2781, 2786) the outstanding men. 
For a good general discussion of the period, see Giraldo Jaramillo's La 
Pintura en Bogota hacia 1850 (item 2784). The miniature painters of 
the early part of the century should not be overlooked (item 2777), nor 
the most important costumbrista painter, Ramon Torres Mendez (items 

2780, 2785). A few travelers contribute to our knowledge of the scene, 
especially Edward Andre, whose America equinoccial (item 2767) in- 
cludes important engravings, and John Steuart's Bogota in 1836-7 (item 



16 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

2771). Among others who visited Colombia are Le Moyne (item 2292), 
Crevaux (item 2309), Derby (item 2311), Duane (item 2312), and 
Stevenson (item 2322). 

The interest of the government in sponsoring art in Colombia augurs 
well for its future in our time. The newly established annual Salon 
(items 3800, 3800a, 3803, 3804), the reorganization of art schools (items 
3808-3810) and of museums of art (items 3812, 3814) illustrate this 
interest. A study of some contemporary artists, Nueve artistas 
colombianos by Jorge Zalamea (item 3805) affords a good idea of the 
Colombian group of painters and sculptors. Gomez Jaramillo is the 
best known of the contemporary painters (items 3827, 3830), and 
Romulo Rozo of the sculptors (items 3832-3834). Architecture and 
the minor and popular arts have been generally disregarded. 

Costa Rica 

In preparing this bibliography only one publication could be dis- 
covered which gave any general view of the arts in Costa Rica. This 
was the publication Guanacaste (item 277), an illustrated commemora- 
tive album which, as is so often the case, furnishes illustrations of typical 
buildings of all periods. A sight-seeing booklet (item 1372), a passage 
on the cathedral in San Juan in a general article (item 751), and some 
documents in the Relation descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de la 
audiencia y capitania general de Guatemala by Torres Lanzas (item 
755) are the only specific references we have found to the modest 
colonial churches of Costa Rica. Leon Fernandez' Historia de Costa 
Rica durante la domination espanola (item 1370a) is useful for back- 
ground, as is Fernandez Guardia's Cronicas coloniales de Costa Rica 
(item 1371). 

On contemporary art some information is to be found in the catalogs 
of the International Business Machines Corporation (items 3096-3098, 
3123-3127). Painted carts, the most characteristic popular art of Costa 
Rica are illustrated in an article by Rafael Lucas Rodriguez C. (item 
3839). Of the contemporary painters only Max Jimenez has received 
special study (items 3835, 3838). 



Cub 



a 



Students of Cuban art have a relatively rich bibliography with which 
to work. To be sure, there is as yet no general history of art in Cuba, 
but the various fields have been surveyed, and in some cases attentively 
studied. Thus the catalog of a recent retrospective exhibit of Cuban 
painting Trescientos aiios de arte en Cuba (item 282) goes far toward 
establishing the basis for a definitive study. Two general articles on 
the development of painting, Bay y Sevilla's Pintura retrospectiva cubana 
(item 300), which is particularly good for the nineteenth century, and 
Armando Maribona's La pintura en Cuba (item 304) which carries the 



INTRODUCTION — CUBA • 17 

story up to the present day, are also valuable. For architecture 
Rodriguez Castell's La arquitectura en Cuba (item 295), though general, 
is a useful survey. Two books of information about monuments and 
buildings in Cuba, Perez-Beato's Habana antigua (item 294) and 
Sanchez de Fuentes's Cuba monumental (item 289), though not by any 
means studies of architecture, afford a general picture of Cuba's archi- 
tectural history. 

The Arquitectura colonial cubana of Weiss y Sanchez (item 1424) is 
the basic work on Cuban architecture from the sixteenth to the early 
nineteenth centuries. The brief text, quoting from documents, and the 
variety of plates provide a fine introduction to the Cuban style. This 
can be supplemented by reference to a wealth of short articles, often 
well illustrated, in the pages of the professional journal now known as 
Arquitectura. These studies by Luis Bay y Sevilla, Bens Arrarte, 
Enrique Cayado, Manuel Perez-Beato, Valladares, S. de Urbino and 
many others, include scale-drawings of architectural details, plans, and 
discussions of reconstructions. On the other hand, there are the 
writings of historians like Roig de Leuchsenring, whose Calles de La 
Habana (item 286), La Habana antigua (item 1412), and La Habana de 
ayer, de hoy, y de manana (item 287) should be consulted for general 
information. Architecture outside Havana is less easily studied, but 
short articles on Remedios (item 1397), Vinales (item 1395), Bayamo 
(items 1398, 1399), and especially Trinidad (items 1383, 1393, 1405, 
1406) suggest the interest of these unexplored places. Fortunately the 
architects of Cuba are actively interested in the preservation of their 
colonial relics, and various sites like Trinidad and Bayamo have been 
declared national monuments. For deeper research in the subject, 
documents have been published by Angulo Ifiiguez in his Pianos de 
monumentos arquitectonicos de America y Filipinas (item 625), in the 
papeles existentes en el Archivo general de Indias (item 1374), the Adas 
capitular es of the Ayuntamiento of Havana (item 1376), and by Irene 
A. Wright in the Historia documentada de San Cristobal (item 1378). 

The other arts have received less attention, although there are two 
monographs on painters, Vicente Escobar by Evilio Govantes (item 
1435), and the nineteenth century French artist J ean-Baptiste Vermay, 
by Jeanne de Leon (item 2820). A study of Cuban sculpture by Luis 
de Soto, La escultura en Cuba (item 306) deals principally with the 
nineteenth century. The most interesting architectural event of the 
nineteenth century, the building of the Templete, with its decorations 
by Vermay, is discussed in a pamphlet by Lescano Abella (item 2806). 

An unusually rich collection of lithograph albums of the Cuban scene 
must also be counted a source of information on architecture in the 
nineteenth century. The finest of these is perhaps Cantero's Los 
ingenios (item 2813), with its illustrations by Eduardo Laplante. 
Miahle's La isla de Cuba (item 2814), the Album pintoresco de la isla 



18 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

de Cuba (item 2812), Hazard's Cuba with Pen and Pencil (item 2795, 
2796), and L'Epine's Un parisien dans les Antilles (item 2797) with its 
drawings by Riou, all offer illustrations of Havana as well as the planta- 
tions. The Comtesse de Merlin's account of life in Cuba, La Havane 
(item 2799), like all of these nineteenth century sources, includes 
descriptions of the art of earlier periods. 



For contemporary painting and sculpture, a number of good catalogs 
supply the lack of any organized text. Most important of these is the 
catalog for the exhibition organized in 1940 by the Instituto Nacional 
de Artes Plasticas (item 3846). Another, valuable for its illustrations, 
is the Primer a exposicion de arte moderno of the Municipio de La 
Habana (item 3847). Catalogs of one-man shows are the Mario 
Carreno (item 3876) and Juan Jose Sicre (item 3885). The only mono- 
graph of importance is on Gattorno, with an introductory text by Ernest 
Hemingway (item 3870). In addition to these a number of cultural 
articles in periodicals will be found by consulting the index for the names 
of artists. The best short general article on the subject is perhaps 
Perez Cisneros's Victor Manuel y la pintura cubana (item 3881). 

The architects of Havana have for a long time been experimenting 
with modern architectural style, although the current periodicals such as 
Arquitectura are the only source of information about them. In Cuba 
as elsewhere at the present time creative activity seems temporarily to 
have outstripped critical publications. 

Dominican Republic 

The colonial buildings of the Dominican Republic were the earliest 
important constructions of the Spaniards in America, and have a funda- 
mental place in any discussion of colonial architecture. Two concise 
accounts will be found, in Miguel Sola's Historia del arte hispano- 
Americano (item 619) and Mario J. Buschiazzo's article Los monu- 
menlos coloniales de Santo Domingo (items 1442, 1443). Rather more 
general accounts, with a less architectural focus, are La ciudad de Santo 
Domingo y sus monumentos coloniales of Federico Llaverias (item 1450) and 
Bernardo Pichardo's Reliquias historicas de La Espafwla (item 1453). 

For more detailed studies of the history of the cathedral, the reader 
should consult the books of Luis E. Alemar and Cipriano de L T trera 
(items 1439, 1455). Utrera deals also with the Dominican foundation 
(item 1455) and the sanctuary of Altagracia (item 1456), while Alemar 
in Lienzos del solar (item 1440) discusses the fortifications of the colonial 
city. The house of Diego Colon, recently restored? is discussed in items 
1438, 1459, 1460, and others. There is still a need, however, for study 
of the whole problem of colonial architecture in the Dominican Republic. 
In addition to historical information on the buildings, plans and meas-

ured drawings are needed, in order to study their relation to the earliest 
Spanish structures elsewhere in America, and to answer the question 
"Is there a Caribbean style ?" Another important theme for this study 
is the investigation of the persistence of the sixteenth -century tradition 
in the later colonial period. A beginning of such broader study has 
evidently been made in the two publications of Erwin Walter Palm El 
tipo andaluz de la casa dominicana (item 1452) and La formation de 
la casa dominicana (item 1451). 

In the nineteenth century there is little to note beyond the comments 
of Caribbean travelers, of whom Samuel Hazard is perhaps the most 
rewarding (item 2824). Recently, however, the government of the 
Dominican Republic has undertaken a program of stimulating the arts 
by the preservation of colonial monuments, establishment of a National 
School of Fine Arts, and the holding of exhibitions of contemporary 
painting and sculpture. Armando Pacheco's study of Trujillo en las 
bellas artes (item 3894) describes this program. Catalogs of two exhi- 
bitions held in 1940 and 1941 (items 3892, 3893) give a good idea of the 
nature of contemporary art in the Dominican Republic. 

Ecuador 

Ecuador, true to its great colonial heritage, has made a notable con- 
tribution to historical literature on art in the Americas. Outstanding 
is the work of Jose Gabriel Navarro, whose monographs on La iglesia 
de la Compania de Jesus en Quito (item 1511) and on the Recoleccion del 
Tejar (item 15C6) rank among the most important volumes in the 
bibliography of colonial America. Among his articles of more general 
scope, one should note particularly La casa urbana (items 655, 656), a 
monograph on colonial domestic architecture. Other articles and 
lectures are the important Curiosa ordenacion arquitectonica en el 
claustro del convento de San Agustin (item 1503), Quito (items 1477, 
1478), La Arquitectura religiosa en Quito (item 1504), El arte quiteno 
(item 1473), Las artes pldsticas en el Ecuador (item 1474), and El 
municipio en America durante la asistencia de Espana (item 656). 
With shorter monographs on the Mercedarian buildings (item 1509), 
on Franciscan establishments (item 1507), on the convent of San 
Diego (item 1510), and the church of San Bias (item 1513), we have 
a body of publications on the architecture of Quito quite unequalled 
for any other colonial city. Three of these are available in English, 
Art in Ecuador (item 314), the Summary of Ten Lectures on Ecuadorian 
Art (item 315), and Quito (item 1478). The ecclesiastical historian Joel 
Monroy has also published documents of value for the architectural 
history of the Mercedarian foundation (items 1498-1500). Excellent 
photographs of these churches are supplied in the album of Andre 
Roosevelt (item 1515).- 

Quito is almost unique among colonial capitals in having preserved 



20 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

the full set of its Libros de Cabildos; their publication by the Archivo 
Municipal (items 1479a-1479h) is one of the great achievements of 
Latin American scholarship. A Coleccion de cedulas reales (item 
1479j) sent to the Audiencia at Quito has also been published. Further 
documentary material for the colonial period can be found in the general 
collections of documents, like Diego Angulo Iniguez's Pianos de monu- 
mentos arquitectonicos (item 625), or Torres Lanzas's Relacion descriptive, 
de los mapas, pianos, etc. de las antiguas audiencias de Panama, Santa 
Fe y Quito (item 669), and in those pertaining to the Viceroyalty of Peru. 
The colonial travelers up the West Coast did not neglect Ecuador, either. 
From the time of the Coronica moralizada of Antonio de !a Calancha 
(item 686), and Lizarraga's Descripcidn breve (697), travelers visited 
Quito throughout the colonial period ; Juan y Santacilia and Ulloa (item 
611) are perhaps the most rewarding. 

Other colonial arts have received less careful attention on the whole. 
Navarro's La escultura en el Ecuador (item 1475) is of importance for 
the whole question of indigenous influence in sculpture, but there is 
nothing to parallel it in the field of painting, although various articles 
on particular painters or pictures are useful (items 1482, 1527, 1529). 
Flores y Caamano published the will of Miguel de Santiago (item 1522) ; 
and a monograph on this famous painter is the work of Valentin Iglesias 
(items 1524-1525). One article on an engraving from Quito, by Furlong 
Cardiff (item 1492), suggests the interesting possibilities for studying 
that medium. There are no publications on the splendid minor arts, 
although some information on silver will be found in Taullard's Plateria 
sudamericana (item 742), and the catalog America South of U. S. (item 
684) may prove useful. On the whole, the anonymous arts of the 
Andean region — which to some extent include painting and sculpture — 
remain quite undifferentiated. A source of illustrations and descrip- 
tions is the catalog of the Alvarado collection (items 317, 318, 320, 321). 

In contrast, nineteenth century Ecuador is silent and unnoticed. 
The best information on the period will be found in Navarro's general 
article, Art in Ecuador (item 314), which is also the most useful summary 
of this whole artistic history now available. The book Four Years 
among Spanish- Americans (item 2826), written by Hassaurek, a United 
States Minister to Ecuador, gives as much particularized information as 
any. Other travelers who went through the Andes, like Edward Derby 
(item 2311), William Duane (item 2312), and William Bennet Stevenson 
(item 2322), describe Quito and other cities; actually their observations 
are of value more for the colonial period than for information on 
nineteenth century art. 

For the modern period in Ecuador, there was not, up to 1941, any 
comprehensive publication. In the bibliography will be found, how- 
ever, a fairly rich documentation from periodicals in Ecuador, which 
shows both artists and critics active there. Eduardo Kingman's wood- 



INTRODUCTION — EL SALVADOR-GUATEMALA • 21 

cuts Hombres del Ecuador (item 3936) is the only publication of any 
stature from the younger group of painters, although there have been 
several imposing monographs devoted to Victor Mideros (items 3947, 
3967, 3979) and Luis Mideros, the sculptor (item 3996). Three longer 
and more general publications, giving notes on various artists, are Jose 
de la Cuadra's Doce siluetas (item 3952), Jorge Diez's La pintura moderna 
en el Ecuador (item 3954), and Ignacio Lasso's Cinco pintores del Ecuador 
(item 3961). 

El Salvador 

The periodical El Salvador published from 1935 to 1940 is the best 
source for the study of the national art. In its pages Alberto Guerra 
Trigueros has published La pintura en El Salvador (items 4018, 4019), 
a survey of the development of modern painting which should serve as a 
point of departure for more detailed presentations of individual figures 
in the future. In another article in this magazine, Las iglesias coloniales 
de El Salvador (item 1534), he has made known the general character of 
the colonial architecture of the country. His excellent descriptions of 
these small local monuments pave the way for a more detailed study 
in relation to Latin American colonial art elsewhere in Central America. 
Some documents for colonial buildings in San Salvador are listed by 
Torres Lanzas in the Relaccion descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de 
la audiencia y capitania general de Guatemala (item 755). In general 
it is wise to consult the Guatemalan sources for the colonial period, like 
Vazquez's Cronica de la provincia del Santissimo Nombre de Jesus de 
Guatemala (item 756), since El Salvador was at that time included in 
the Reyno de Guatemala. 

The number of articles published in El Salvador on the national Salons 
(items 4001-4003), and on contemporary crafts (items, 4004, 4008,) 
suggest a growing self -awareness and an interesting future for art in 
El Salvador. 

Guatemala 

The bibliography of Guatemalan art is the richest for any Central 
American country. There are various reasons for this, notably the 
flourishing state of the folk arts, and the interest which the government 
has lately shown in preserving colonial art and in encouraging con- 
temporary artists. The foreword by Castellanos for a new catalog to 
the Museo Nacional de Historia y Bellas Artes (item 331) is a thorough 
and suggestive outline of the whole history of art in Guatemala, while 
Victor Miguel Diaz's Las bellas artes en Guatemala (item 332) is the 
basic general history, abounding in valuable information on colonial 
and nineteenth century art. The best survey in English is found in 
Four Keys to Guatemala by Vera Kelsey and Lilly de J. Osborne (item 
338), which deals more with modern art than the volume of Diaz. 



22 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

During the colonial period, the Reyno de Guatemala comprised the 
greater part of Central America and the state of Chiapas (now a part 
of Mexico), and for this reason conterrporary studies of Guatemalan 
colonial art are actually Central American in scope. Torres Lanzas' 
Relation descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de la audiencia y capitania 
general de Guatemala (item 755) thus includes El Salvador, Honduras, 
Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. This is true also of the chronicles, like 
Francisco Vaquez's Chronica de la provincia del Santissimo Nombre de 
Jesus de Guatemala (items 756, 757), Francisco de Florencia's (items 
1603, 16C4), Antonio de Remesal's (item 1555), and Francisco Ximenez's 
(item 1556), although the ecclesiastical boundaries are somewhat 
different from the secular. The Historia de Guatemala and Recordation 
florida del reyno de Guatemala (items 1547, 1548) of Fuentes y Guzman 
give valuable data on the seventeenth-century scene. There are also 
famous descriptions of the city of Antigua and its various destructions, 
such as Cadena's and Juan Rodriguez's (items 1540, 1541, 1555a, 1568). 
Nor should Thomas Gage's famous story of his travels from Mexico 
City to Guatemala be overlooked (items 604, 605). 

This wealth of material is only beginning to be explored by scholars 
today. Probably the most complete and best illustrated account is that 
of Miguel Sola in the Historia del arte hispano-americano (item 619), 
where the principal monuments are listed with the dates and names of 
architects which are known, and some discussion of colonial sculpture 
as well. Diaz's La romdntica ciudad colonial (item 1544) is the best 
description of buildings in Antigua, and includes comments on their 
furnishings. Nor should Buschiazzo's contribution, Guatemala antigua 
be neglected (item 1560) or the study of Perez Valenzuela La Nueva 
Guatemala de la Asuncion (item 1566). Some Guatemalan buildings 
are also included in the general study by Toussaint and Dr. Atl of 
Mexican colonial architecture (item 1570). Medina, as usual, has 
given us a serious study La imprenta en Guatemala (item 1553). Except 
in the field of sculpture, where we have Salvador Toscano's serious 
report La escultura colonial en Guatemala (item 1572), there has been 
little scholarly effort in the subsidiary colonial arts. 

Nineteenth century travelers' reports, such as Haefkens's Centraal 
Amerika (item 2335), Morelet's Travels (items 2336a, 2336b), and 
Thompson's Narrative of an Official Visit to Guatemala (items 2832, 
2833) also contribute principally descriptions of colonial architecture. 
There is a contemporary account of the cathedral (item 2829), and 
attention should be called to that section of Castellano's catalog of the 
Museo Nacional de Historia y Bellas Artes which deals with the period 
of the Wars of Independence (item 2830). 

The textile arts of present-day Guatemala have deservedly received 
serious study. The work of Lilly de Jongh Osborne should be particu- 
larly noted (items 4037-4039); other articles are items 4028a, 4034, 



INTRODUCTION — HAITI-HONDURAS • 23 

4040. Contemporary fine arts are beginning to take a serious place in 
the national culture, with the establishment of an Academia Nacional 
de Bellas Artes (item 4024) as discussed in The Guatemalan Art Renais- 
sance (item 4027). Carlos Merida has been so closely associated with 
the Mexican school, that his bibliography must be followed in the 
general books on contemporary Mexican painting; though there are 
many articles either dealing with him, or by him (items 4042-4052, 
4460-4463), and several portfolios of reproductions (items 4049, 4073, 
4193). 

Haiti 

The history of Haitian art is unique among the countries of the New 
World, in that the nineteenth century has received most attention. 
Earlier architecture of the Spanish and French colonial periods has 
hardly been investigated, although it must eventually be taken into 
account in preparing the story of the Carribean style. Furthermore, 
in Moreau de Saint-Mery's Description topographique (item 1573a) and 
the Recueil de vues des lieux principaux de la colonie jrancaise de 
Saint-Dominique by Nicolas Ponce which accompanied it (item 1574), 
we have one of the finest of the descriptive publications of the 18th 
century. Another worth noting is the well-illustrated Nouveau voyage 
aux isles de V Amerique of Jean Labat (item 754). 

Accounts of nineteenth century travelers, like Samuel Hazard's Santo 
Domingo Past and Present, with a Glance at Hayti (item 2835) carry on 
the tradition. Among others offering either descriptions or illustrations 
of the Haitian scene are Doruo-Soulastre (item 2834) and Rainsford 
(item 2842). The twentieth-century writers have contributed less — a 
number of cursory descriptions of the palace of Sans-Souci and the 
citadel La Ferriere (items 2836, 2838, 2839, 2843) , of which the best are by 
L. F. Pilcher (items 2840, 2841) and include plans as well as photographs. 

To this list may be added two illustrated volumes of guidebook 
material (items 341, 342) and the mention of Haitian artists in the 
catalogs of the International Business Machines Corporation (items 
3096-3098, 3104, 3122-3127). The sculpture and painting of the time 
of King Henri Christophe, like the folk-arts, remain to be explored. 

Honduras 

Since Honduras was a part of the Audiencia of Guatemala in the 
colonial period, much of the source material on Guatemala includes 
information on Honduranean cities and buildings. Thus for Franciscan 
foundations Vazquez's Cronica de la provincia del Santissima Nombre de 
Jesus de Guatemala (items 756, 757) should be consulted; the Historia 
de Guatemala and Recordacion florida of Fuentes y Guzman (items 
1547, 1548) give more general information. Similarly the Relacion 
descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de la audiencia y capitania general 



24 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

de Guatemala of Torres Lanzas (item 755) includes some documents 
pertaining to Honduranean architecture. 

The value of the colonial remains, and the availability of contem- 
porary information far outweigh, however, modern study of any aspect 
of colonial art there. Comayagua, the most interesting architectural 
site in the republic is described in a pamphlet by Ypsilanti de Moldavia 
(item 1576). The profuse, but indifferent, illustrations of the Manual 
del turista en Honduras (item 343) afford the only other information on 
that architecture. The inclusion of some modern Honduranean artists 
in the collections of the International Business Machines Corporation 
(items 3123-3127) is the only evidence available about contemporary 
activities in that field. 

Mexico 

From the beginning, Mexico has been fortunate in producing critics 
and chroniclers of art, as well as artists. Even Bernal Diaz del Castillo, 
after his eyewitness account of the Conquest, goes on to record the 
rebuilding of the city of Mexico, mentioning artists by name (items 
1595a, 1596). As early as 1541 Motolinia had written his account of 
the first years of missionary effort (items 1617, 1617a) and a description 
of the City of Mexico was published by Cervantes de Salazar in 1554 
(item 1584c). We cannot begin to mention here even the outstanding 
examples of the many reports of ecclesiastical and civil officials in 
Mexico, or of the accounts of visiting monks and travelers throughout 
the colonial period. These will be found for the most part in the 
general section of the Mexican colonial bibliography; attention should 
also be drawn to the excellent bibliography of Ricard's La "Conquete 
spirituelle" du Mexique (item 1788). Works such as the Franciscan, 
Jeronimo de Mendieta's Historia eclesidstica Indiana (item 1611b), 
Davila Padilla's account of Dominican activities in the sixteenth 
century (item 1594), Juan de Grijalva's basic Cronica de la or den de 
n. p. S. Agustin (items 1608a, 1609), and Cristobal de Aldana's Cronica 
de la Merced de Mexico (item 1578) will form the basis of any study of the 
colonial arts, and particularly the architecture of Mexico. These are 
followed in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by a group of 
similar regional histories of missionary activities, such as Escobar's 
accounts of the Augustinians in Michoacan (items 1601a, 1601b), 
Burgoa's works on Oaxaca (items 1582-1 583c), Ximenez's Historia de 
la provincia de San Vicente de Chiapa y Guatemala (item 1556) or the 
Jesuit descriptions of Sonora (items 1594a, 1595). More general his- 
tories are the chronicle of Cervantes de Salazar (items 1584a, 1584b), 
the Teatro americano of Villa-Senor y Sanchez (item 1640), Bernardo 
Valbuena's Grandeza mexicana (items 1841, 1842) or Vetancurt's Teatro 
mexicano (items 1857-1859). 

In this early period there is another category peculiar to Mexico: the 



INTRODUCTION — MEXICO • 25 

hieroglyphic codices which, although they stem from pre-Columbian art, 
continued to be made well into the sixteenth century. Many of these 
are available in print; their date is often uncertain, however, and in this 
bibliography we have included merely examples of the most significant 
types. Typical forms are the chronicles and histories in the Aztec 
tradition, such as the Codex Aubin (item 1586) and the Codex of 
Yanhuitldn (item 1593) or the Codex Mendoza, prepared as a specimen 
for Charles V (item 1589). Other types are tax reports or various legal 
records, such as the Codex Sierra (item 1591) and those published by 
the Mexican Archivo General de la Nacion (item 1612a). The Codex 
Kingsborough (item 1588) and the Codex Osuna (item 1590) are more 
detailed memorials to the authorities, valuable also for information 
about building and labor conditions. Finally there are the treatises 
prepared by ecclesiastics, in an effort to preserve some record of the 
Indian civilization. Of these Bernardino de Sahagun's Historia general 
de las cosas de Nueva Espana (items 1632-1 634a) is the finest example; 
besides documenting the life, religion, costume, arts and crafts of the 
natives, its profuse illustrations show the early fusion of Indian and 
European tradition in painting. 

In addition to these early texts, many colonial documents are avail- 
able in print. Besides Angulo Ifiiguez's work on architecture (item 625) 
and Torres Lanza's Relation descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de 
Mexico y Florida (item 1824), there are many general collections which 
provide indispensable material. Such are the Actos del cabildo de 
Mexico (item 1612b), the Papeles de Nueva Espana (item 1619d), the 
Epistolario de Nueva Espana (item 1601), Garcia Icazbalceta's Cartas 
de religiosos de Nueva Espana (item 1583e) the Instrucciones que los 
virreyes de Nueva Espana dejaron a sus sucesores (items 1613c, 1614) 
and many others. The Fuentes para la historia del trabajo en Nueva 
Espana, edited by Silvio Zavala and Maria Castelo (item 1641a), and 
the Legislation del trabajo (item 1613) both furnish information on 
craftsmen as well as labor in the building trades, and especial mention 
should be made of Barrio Lorenzot's Ordenanzas de gremio de la Nueva 
Espana (item 1580), a compendium of information on the guilds. 

This variety and wealth of source material is a good indication that 
sound scholarly work has been done in the field of colonial art in Mexico. 
Thus, on the subject of painting, besides a variety of short articles there 
are two books, well illustrated and documented, the Iconografia colonial 
of Romero Flores (item 1956), which catalogs some two hundred por- 
traits of the Museo Nacional, and Agustin Velazquez Chavez's Tres 
sighs de pintura colonial (item 1970). Manuel Toussaint, in publish- 
ing the documents of the Proceso y denuncias contra Simon Pereyns 
(item 1963) has made a beginning toward more serious scholarship. 
Similarly in the field of sculpture the Universidad Nacional has pub- 
lished under the title Imagineria colonial (item 1977) two studies of 



26 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

colonial sculpture by Toussaint and Rodriguez Lozano. Earlier at- 
tempts to analyze the material of colonial sculpture were Romero de 
Terreros y Vinent's Breves apuntes sobre la escultura colonial (item 
1983) and Dr. Atl's volume on Los altares (item 1980) in the collection 
Iglesias de Mexico. 

The minor arts which, thanks to the indigenous tradition, have always 
been interesting in Mexico, have likewise been outlined by Romero de 
Terreros y Vinent in Las artes industriales en la Nueva Espana (item 1914). 
Among the various techniques, silver has received the fullest treatment 
in The Art of the Silversmith in Mexico, by L. L. Anderson (items 1886, 
1887). Edwin Atlee Barber's studies of Mexican maiolica (items 487, 
490, 496) are also of importance; to these should be added the Loza blanca 
y azulejo de Puebla of Enrique A. Cervantes (item 1894). Wrought iron 
is presented by Cervantes in the Herreros y forjadores poblanos and 
Hierros de Oaxaca (items 1891-1893), and in Antonio Cortes' Hierros 
forjados (item 1899). For bookbinding there is the Encuadernaciones 
artisticas mexicanas of Romero de Terreros y Vinent (item 1915). Finally, 
two good studies of the choir stalls of the Cathedral of Mexico and San 
Agustin respectively have initiated the study of woodcarving — Catedral 
metropolitana; siller ia del coro by Cervantes (item 1889) and Silleria del 
coro de la antigua iglesia de San Agustin by Rafael Garcia Granados (item 
1903). Graphic arts in the colonial period have been treated principally 
from the point of view of printing, as in Medina's volumes (items 1876, 
1876a), although as long ago as 1886 Garcia Icazbalceta published a 
number of book illustrations in his Bibliografia mexicana del siglo XVI 
(item 1871). An excellent article on Juan Ortiz was published in the 
Colophon (item 1885a), and a colored plate of this earliest engraving 
will be found in E. O'Gorman's article (item 1878). 

Architecture is the most important of the colonial arts in Mexico and 
as such has received the fullest treatment. Most notable is a publica- 
tion by the Direction General de Bienes Nacionales of Mexico, whose 
two-volume Catdlogo de construcciones religiosas del estado de Hidalgo 
(item 1749) constitutes perhaps the most imposing work of scholarship 
in the field of Latin American art. Through a variety of other publi- 
cations the Mexican government has shown its interest in colonial 
architecture, foremost among them the Edificios coloniales artisticos e 
historicos de la Republica Mexicana que han sido declarados monumentos 
(item 1746), a catalog of historical buildings. Others are Tres sighs de 
arquitectura colonial (items 1747-1748), iglesias y conventos de la ciiidad 
de Mexico (items 1751, 1752), the monographs on La catedral y el sagrario 
de Mexico (item 1750) and El palacio de Mineria (item 1754), Ignacio 
Marquina's Arquitectura cristiana del valle de Teotihuacan (item 1737) 
and finally the six-volume work Iglesias de Mexico (item 1755). 

The student of architecture is especially fortunate in a number of 
volumes and portfolios of photographs. A pioneer in this field was the 



INTRODUCTION — MEXICO • 27 

North American Sylvester Baxter (items 1655-1658), while in more 
recent years, George Richard Garrison and George Rustay (item 1703), 
and Anna and David Vhay (item 1861) have given further proof of 
our interest in the architecture of Mexico. The oldest of the important 
Mexican publications is the Arquitectura en Mexico; iglesias of Antonio 
Cortes and Genaro Garcia (item 1681). The most extensive work of 
this sort has been done by Enrique Cervantes, whose portfolios of con- 
tact prints on Guanajuato (item 451a), on Puebla (item 452), Queretaro 
(item 453), Tasco (item 454), and Tepic (item 454a), with others pub- 
lished later, are invaluable. Antonio Cortes has contributed a similar 
volume on Guanajuato, Valenciana (item 1680), and Cornejo Franco on 
Guadalaxara colonial (item 1679). 

At the same time, serious monographs have begun to appear on 
important colonial buildings or cities. Although ordinarily they include 
nineteenth-century and even modern architecture and often cover the 
paintings, sculpture, and minor arts as well, their emphasis is funda- 
mentally on the colonial buildings. Typical of these are the volumes 
of Rafael Garcia Granados on Xochimilco (item 384), La ciudad de 
Oaxaca (item 385), and Huejotzingo (item 386). Jose Benitez's Morelia 
(item 358) is similar in type, as are the rather more popular series by 
Miguel Alessio Robles on La ciudad de Mexico, La ciudad de Saltillo, 
El estado de Michoacdn: La ciudad de Morelia, and El estado de Morelos: 
Cuernavaca (items 345-349). It is impossible, however, to mention all 
these studies; some of the most valuable have appeared in the Anales del 
Instituto de investigaciones esteticas, the Archivo espanol de arte y arqueolo- 
gia, and the Arte en America y Filipinas. 

Monographs on architects are rarer ; only Tolsa and Tresguerras have 
received any considerable study. For Tolsa we have the Testamento de 
Manuel Tolsa, published in the Anales del Instituto de investigaciones 
esteticas (item 1821) and Alfredo Escontria's study (item 1689). For 
Tresguerras, in addition to various popular articles, the Homenaje al 
insigne arquitecto don Francisco Eduardo Tresguerras (item 1711) and 
Romero de Terreros y Vinent's earlier study El Arquitecto Tresguerras 
(item 1792) are most important. 

It is from such scattered sources, at times scholarly, at times popular, 
but never comprehensive, that the reader must collect the story of 
Mexico's colonial period. A few works of general scope should be 
mentioned in closing: the Mexican chapters of Sola's Historia del arte 
hispano-americano (item 619), Diez Barrosa's El arte en Nueva Espana 
(item 1597), and Romero de Terrero y Vinent's Arte colonial (item 
1628). The Historia de la iglesia en Mexico of Mariano Cuevas (items 
370-371) is of the greatest value, not only for the historical background 
and for some specific passages on architecture and the arts, but also for 
its profuse illustrations throughout. Another book primarily ecclesias- 
tical in focus, Ricard's La "Conquete spirituelle" du Mexique (item 1788) 

738285 — 48 — 3 



28 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

devotes considerable attention to the arts sponsored by the church, and 
is probably the best general text for the sixteenth century. 

In contrast to the great colonial period, the period of the early re- 
public in the nineteenth century has been very little appraised. Roberto 
Montenegro's Pinturas mexicanas; 1800-1860 (items 2937-2938) is the 
only general book on painting, and only two painters have received any 
individual attention: Saturnino Herran (item 2944) and Velasco (item 
2929). Various texts on modern art do deal with the period, notably 
Justino Fernandez's Arte moderno en Mexico (item 376); and the 
Historia del arte en Mexico of Jose Juan Tablada (item 434) is especially 
good in its treatment of the transition from colonial to republican art. 
Architecture and sculpture have gone practically unnoticed except for 
those artists, such as Tolsa, whose whole oeuvre has for convenience 
been classified as colonial in this bibliography. 

Graphic arts, on the other hand, developed richly in this century, 
through the work of typographers like Murgia (items 2911, 2912) or 
Cumplido (items 2895, 2902, 2908, 2914) and lithographers such as 
Decain (items 2908, 2912a), Iriarte, and Campillo (item 2911). With 
these we have included Jos£ Guadalupe Posada (item 2913a) although 
he lived on into the twentieth century. All the great illustrated 
albums of this period, such as the Album mexicano (item 2895), the 
Album del ferrocarril mexicano (item 2905), Mexico y sus alrededores 
(items 2912, 2913) and the Museo mexicano (item 2914), in addition 
to their graphic interest, shed light on questions of architecture and the 
minor and folk arts as well. A charming example of the nineteenth 
century illustrated book, available in a facsimile, is Los mexicanos 
pintados por si mismos (items 2911, 2912). 

There remain, to complete the nineteenth century bibliography, the 
travelers' accounts included here for their descriptions and their illus- 
trations. Foremost among these is Mme. Calderon de la Barca's Life 
in Mexico (items 2849-2851); like so many of these accounts, hers is 
valuable for its information on the colonial period as well. Other 
useful volumes are Bullock's Six Months Residence and Travels, Heller's 
Reisen in Mexiko (item 2866), Latrobe (item 2868), Stephens (items 
2883, 2884), Waddy Thompson (item 2887) and Mrs. H. G. Ward's Six 
Views of the Most Important Towns (item 2888). Christian Sartorius's 
Mexiko (item 2879) deserves special note for its lithographs by Rugen- 
das, as does the Itinerario parroquial del arzobispado de Mexico (item 
2887) which closes the long tradition of ecclesiastical excursions. 



Mexican art in the twentieth century is not merely the most important 
of the national schools; by symbolizing the aspirations and influencing 
the artists of other countries it also assumes the importance of a pan- 
American movement. For this reason the bibliography of contempo- 



INTRODUCTION — MEXICO • 29 

rary art in Mexico is the fullest section of this guide ; here alone do we 
find serious and comprehensive studies, in English as well as in Spanish. 
The mural painting of the 1920's has received most attention, but 
several of the general texts deal with earlier artists and later movements 
as well. The best survey in Spanish is that of Velazquez Chavez, 
Indice de la pintura mexicana contempordnea (item 4631) which has 
appeared also in English as Contemporary Mexican Artists (item 4628). 
Another one especially good for its notice of sculptors, is the section by 
Justino Fernandez (item 4068) in Esther Born's book on architecture. 
Schmeckebier's Modern Mexican Art (item 4085a) is useful for the back- 
ground of the movement and for the works of Rivera and Orozco; see 
also a review of this book (item 4458). The Modern Mexican Painters 
of MacKinley Helm (item 4429) includes more artists, especially of the 
younger group. Anita Brenner's Idols behind altars (item 361) although 
it discusses a much wider subject, should also be mentioned here for its 
section on the painters of the '20s; it was the earliest book in English, and 
remains one of the most authentic. Carlos Merida's volume Modern 
Mexican Artists (item 4462) and the portfolio Thirteen Mexican Painters 
issued by the Ensenanza Objetiva (item 4616) give brief notes and good 
reproductions. Catalogs of exhibitions, such as the contemporary section 
of Twenty Centuries of Mexican Art (item 417) and the traveling exhibition 
of The Boston Institute of Modern Art (item 4310) are usually well 
illustrated. With these should be included a general article on the 
graphic work of the same group of artists, Mexican Graphic Art by Carl 
Zigrosser (item 4203). For the murals in Mexico there are also guides, 
brief but useful, like the Modern Mexican Frescoes of Emily Edwards (item 
4373) and the Mexican Art Series put out by Frances Toor (item 4465). 
In addition there are serious monographs on a few of the contemporary 
painters, notably Diego Rivera. With Bertram Wolfe's biography 
Diego Rivera, his Life and Times (items 4659, 4660) and the two volumes 
of reproductions edited by him, Portrait of America (item 4573) and 
Portrait of Mexico (item 4574), we have a pretty thorough record of 
Rivera's work through the 1930's. Two volumes of color reproductions 
(items 4493, 4622) are important; that issued by the Museum of Modern 
Art is the finest presentation to date of any Latin American art. Cata- 
logs of exhibitions which furnish excellent texts and illustrations come 
from the Museum of Modern Art (item 4492) and the San Francisco 
Museum of Art (item 4594). Das Werk des Maters Diego Rivera (item 
4651) is significant not only in showing how far his fame had spread in 
1928, but because the biographical text was contributed by the artist 
himself. Attention should also be drawn to Rivera's extensive writings, 
on art and on political subjects (see Index), and to the full bibliography 
of these writings given by Wolfe (item 4659). Finally, there are a few 
brief monographs on frescoes in the United States and in Mexico (items 
4372, 4379, 4522). 



30 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

Although up to 1941 no comprehensive monograph on the work of 
Jose Clemente Orozco had appeared, there is a book of representative 
reproductions (item 4537). The frescoes in Guadalajara (items 4442, 
4509), at Jilquilpan (item 4598), at Dartmouth (item 4359), and in the 
Museum of Modern Art (item 4508) have been separately published. 
There have also been two good articles on his graphic work, by Schmeck- 
ebier and Tietze (items 4198, 4199). 

Monographs on other painters are the Carlos Merida of Cardoza y 
Aragon (item 4324) and an illustrated pamphlet on Abraham Angel 
(item 4287). Collections of graphic work have been published by 
Chariot (item 4168), Covarrubias (items 4170, 4171, 4172), Siqueiros 
(item 4173), Rodriguez Luna (item 4176), Diaz de Leon (item 4179), 
Gabriel Fernandez Ledesma (item 4180), Orozco Romero (item 4194), 
Merida (item 4193), Montenegro (item 4196), Leopoldo Mendez (item 
4177), and Dr. Atl (item 4201). For other artists, sculptors and graphic 
artists as well as painters, a good deal of material is available, both in 
the general histories and in periodicals all over the world, particularly 
such Mexican magazines as Mexican Art and Life, Universidad, and 
Mexican Life. Such references can be found under the artist's name in 
the general index. 

In the field of architecture, although Mexico early produced interest- 
ing modern buildings, there is only one comprehensive study, Esther 
Born's The New Architecture in Mexico (item 4093). This appeared 
first in the Architectural Record, which since 1912 (item 4122) has pro- 
vided a fairly constant chronicle of the work of Mexican architects 
(items 4100, 4101, 4121). Mexican architectural journals, such as El 
Arquitecto, Arquitectura, Arquitectura y decoracion, and the Revista 
mexicana de ingenieria y arquitectura will be found to give a month to 
month picture of what is actually being built, though no attempt has 
been made to analyze them here. 

Mexican folk arts and handicrafts are adequately presented in 
Frances Toor's Mexican Popular Arts (item 4278) and in Las artes 
popular es en Mexico by Dr. Atl (item 4080). Several catalogs are 
useful: the Bartlett Collection (item 4214), those for the first great 
Mexican exhibit shown in the United States (items 352a, 353, 390-396), 
and the folk art section of Twenty Centuries of Mexican Art (item 417). 
There are also special studies on textiles and costumes (items 492, 4215, 
4216, 4257), toys (items 4225, 4238), masks (item 4249), and lacquer 
(item 493). Finally, a particularly interesting development of the 
modern movement in Mexico, the art schools for children are discussed 
in a group of articles which will be found listed under Education and 
Institutions (item 4124 seq.). The most important of these are the 
publications of Best-Maugard, the first director of the schools (items 
4126-4128), the special number of Everyday Art devoted to the school 
at Taxco (items 4141, 4151, 4158) and above all the Monografia de !as 



INTRODUCTION — NICARAGUA-PANAMA • 31 

escuelas de pintura al aire libre published by the Ministry of Public 
Education in Mexico (item 4142). 

Nicaragua 

Nineteenth-century travelers called attention to the fine colonial 
architecture of Nicaragua's old cities of Granada and Leon. As early 
as 1827 an Englishman, Orlando Roberts, described the buildings of 
Leon (item 2950), and Ephraim G. Squier's volume of 1852, Nicaragua: 
its People, Scenery, Monuments (item 2951) is still the best general report 
on the country. No serious study has yet been given to these cities, 
which are among the best preserved of all colonial sites in this hemi- 
sphere, although Torres Lanzas includes" some documents in his volume 
Relacion descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de la audiencia y capitania 
general de Guatemala (item 755). 

P. Penalva, in an article entitled La pintura en Nicaragua (item 
521) surveys the development of that art since colonial days. The work 
of a contemporary Nicaraguan sculptor long resident in Mexico, Roberto 
de la Selva, is presented in a well illustrated monograph (item 4697), 
and there is also information available on the indigenist designs of 
David Sequeira. The work of a few Nicaraguan artists is included in 
the collection of the International Business Machines Corporation 
(items 3126, 3127). Fortunately we may count on the recently estab- 
lished Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes and reference library in Mana- 
gua to give impetus to both artists and historians of art. 

Panama 

Only the colonial period in Panama (and principally its architecture), 
has received any considerable attention from historians of art. Various 
valuable documents are printed by Torres Lanzas, in the Relacion 
descriptiva de los mapas, pianos, etc. de las antiguas audiencias de 
Panama, Santa Fe y Quito (item 669), and plans for the church at 
Portobelo in the Pianos de monumentos arquitectonicos de America y 
Filipinas (item 625) by Angulo Iniguez. Colonial travelers, such as 
Juan y Santacillia and Ulloa (items 612, 613), give valuable descriptions 
of the old city as did nineteenth-century travelers: Terry's Travels in 
the Equatorial Regions (item 2297) or Bovallius's Resa i Central-Amerika 
(item 2333). No modern research has been concerned with a recon- 
struction of the ruins, however. Mario Buschiazzo's article Panama la 
Vieja (item 1989) is the most scholarly publication, from the architec- 
tural point of view, on the cathedral and other colonial buildings in 
Panama. A group of guidebooks by Herrera (items 1992, 1993) and 
Sosa (item 2000), with various superficial articles in periodicals, close 
the list of available publications. 

For photographs of Panamanian architecture in general the reader is 
referred to a booklet published by the government in connection with 



32 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

the Seville Exposition of 1929 (items 523, 524). A rambling book on 
the colonial scene Sketches of Spanish Colonial Life in Panama, by Lady 
Mallet (item 1998), touches on the minor arts, with some good illustra- 
tions of silver and furniture. 

Paraguay 

The bibliography of Paraguayan art reflects the course of Paraguay's 
history, and like that history is different from any other country's. 
For the period of the Jesuit settlements, source material of all kinds is 
available. Because of their remoteness, however, we have relatively 
few accounts by travelers of the nineteenth century, and practically no 
critical study in our time. Thus we must go back to the Jesuit papers 
(items 2008, 2017), to the early histories such as Charlevoix's (items 
2005-2007) and Demersay's (item 2009) and descriptions of the period 
such as Muratori's II Cristianesimo Felice nelle Missioni di Padri della 
Compagnia di Gesil nel Paraquai (item 2020) and others (items 2004, 
2019, 2024). 

Among modern writers, information must be culled from historians 
rather than critics of art. The study of the whole region by Guillermo 
Furlong Cardiff, Los Jesuitas y la cultura Rio-Platense (item 691) is 
perhaps the richest in information and illustrations. Others worth 
noting are Capdeville's Misiones jesuiticas en el Paraguay (item 2003), 
Demersay's Histoire physique, economique et politique du Paraguay et 
des etablissements des Jesuites (item 2009), Cunninghame Graham's A 
Vanished Arcadia (item 2015), and finally Hernandez's exhaustive 
Misiones del Paraguay (item 2016). Furlong Cardiff has written the 
best architectural study to date (item 2031). Early engravers are 
mentioned in Medina's La Imprenta en el antiguo virreinato del Rio de 
la Plata (item 733). Articles by Liberto Fridman (items 2010-2013), 
by Pablo Alborno (items 2026, 2026a), and Arturo Bordon (items 2028, 
2029) are useful, especially for their illustrations. Finally, various 
guidebooks document the field rather inadequately, that of the Touring 
Club Italiano (item 584), two pamphlets for tourists (items 527, 528), 
and the Guia geogrdfica of Bordon (item 529). 

For the contemporary period and the century preceeding, there is very 
little information available. Articles on crafts, especially lace-making 
(items 56b, 4702, 4705) must be supplemented by the guidebooks, by 
the catalog of the Museo de Bellas Artes (item 526) and by an Album 
grdfico de la Republica del Paraguay (item 530) whose profuse illustra- 
tions and superficial essays on the art and monuments of Paraguay 
constitute the nearest approach to a general survey of the field. 

Peru 

Peru, head of the richest viceroyalty of colonial Spanish America, has 
been up to the present curiously heedless of its colonial heritage. There 



INTRODUCTION — PERU • 33 

is no general book on the art of this period, there is no special study of 
Peruvian architecture, or sculpture, and the one book on colonial 
painting, Pintura colonial; escuela cuzquena by Cossio del Pomar (item 
2226), deals with only the pictures now to be seen in a single city 
of Peru. This is not to say that scholars have entirely neglected the 
field. Domingo Angulo has published valuable documents in the 
Revista del Archivo nacional del Peru (items 2109-2110) for a series of 
buildings. Documents and drawings from the Archivo de Indias are, 
as usual, given by Diego Angulo Iniguez in the Pianos de monumentos 
arquitectonicos (item 625) and by Torres Lanzas in the Relacion descrip- 
tiva de los mapas, pianos, etc., del virreinato del Peru (item 732). In 
addition, two publications by Jose Torre Revello (items 630, 2190) 
provide further documentation and illustration. A good deal of Peru- 
vian source-material of a general nature is also available in print, such 
as the Memorias de los virreyes que han governado el Peru (items 2090, 
2092), the papers of the Cabildos de Lima (items 2067a-2067b) and 
Odriozola's Documentos historicos del Peru del coloniaje (item 727). 
Almost as basic are the reprints of the M ugaburu Diario de Lima (items 
2077, 2078) and of Juan Antonio Suardo's diary (item 2098), or the 
eighteenth century Mer curio Peruano (item 2075a). Early histories and 
descriptions such as the facsimile Nueva cronica y buen gobierno of Poma 
de Ayala (item 617), Lizarraga's (item 699), Frezier's (items 689, 690), 
or Juan y Santacilia and Ulloa's (items 611a, 612) are often valuable; 
an excellent list of these is the Biblioteca Andina (item 699a). There are 
many early chroniclers, like Cobo de Peralta (item 601), and monastic 
historians such as Antonio de la Calancha (items 686, 687), and Peru has 
a special literature on earthquakes (items 2058, 2060, 2102) which is of 
considerable importance in the history of architecture. Particularly 
valuable, for their descriptions are the seventeenth-century accounts of 
Francisco de Echave y Assii La estrella de Lima convertida en Sol (item 
2041) and the eighteenth century El suelo de Arequipa convertido en cielo 
of Vicente Travada (item 2101), and above all the facsimile selections 
from the nine manuscript volumes, Trujillo del Peru made for Bishop 
Martinez Companon (item 2103). 

On the other hand, relatively little has been done with this wealth of 
material. A book on La arquitectura en el virreinato del Peru y en la 
capitania general de Chile by Benavides Rodriguez (item 708) stands 
almost alone, with three essays by Mario Buschiazzo (items 2126-2128) 
and one by Manuel Toussaint (item 2202), though one should note also 
a group of students' research papers on buildings of Lima (item 2070). 
It is true also that the writings of Angel Guido (items 710-717, 2234) 
and of Martin Noel (items 656b, 718-726, 2079, 2187-2189) though they 
speak of Spanish American or South American style in general terms, 
usually refer to the Andean architecture of Alto Peru. For anything 
like a thorough account of architectural monuments, or their decorating 



34 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

and furniture, we have nothing more detailed than the Guia historica- 
artistica del Cuzco edited by Jose Uriel Garcia and Albert A. Giesecke 
(items 2050, 2051). The graphic arts have been treated by Jose 
Toribio Medina (item 2210), and in his study of the Peruvian textile 
in the Boston Museum, Philip Ainsworth Means devotes a section to 
those of the colonial period (item 2220a). Furniture and other arts will 
be found among the collection of Gustavo M. Barreto (item 740). Silver 
work, however, is the only minor art which has received any special 
attention, not only in Raoul d'Harcourt's V Argenterie peruvienne 
a Vepoque coloniale (item 2214a), but by the importance of its position 
in studies of Latin American or South American silver by Taullard 
(item 742), Torre Revello (item 678), and Marquez Miranda (item 2220). 

Peru continued throughout the nineteenth century to be a romantic 
place which attracted travelers. Some of their accounts have yet to 
be equalled; Markham's Cuzco and Lima (item 2961) or Middendorf's 
Peru (item 2962) rank with the most interesting of that century's dis- 
cursive treatises. Among others which have good descriptions or 
illustrations are the travels of Hutchinson (item 2958), Skinner (item 
2097a), Temple (item 2964), and the Peregrinations d } une paria by 
Flore Celestine Therese Henriette Tristan y Moscoso (item 2965). It 
should not be forgotten that in a country like Peru, these books are of 
value, for their reports on colonial art as well. There has been little 
study of the nineteenth century costumbrista painters and engravers 
who flourished here as they did all over Latin America, with the excep- 
tion of Pancho Fierro, whose watercolors have been published by 
Angelica Palma (item 2974) and in many shorter studies. Jose Gil de 
Castro, the Peruvian portraitist so closely identified with the early 
years of independence in Chile and the Argentine as well as Peru, has 
been treated in a monograph by Alvarez Urquieta (item 2326). 

To represent the official Europeanized art of the period there is the 
catalog of Francisco Laso's retrospective exhibition (item 2981) and 
a variety of articles on Luis Montero, Merino, and Carlos Baca-Flor 
which may be found in the index. The bibliography of this group 
should be sought rather in the contemporary periodicals of Paris and 
Madrid. Finally, the study Lima a principios del siglo XIX of Antonio 
de La Madrid Vazquez de Aldana (item 2959) is an interesting com- 
pendium of general material. 

It is surprising that up to 1941 there had been no important publica- 
tion on the modern art of Peru which centered around the Escuela 
Nacional de Bellas Artes. An article by Carlos Raygada in the Bulletin 
of the Pan American Union of 1933, The New Peruvian Painting (items 
4760-4762) was the most comprehensive; besides this there were only 
articles in periodicals and discussions in books of a general character, 
like Basadre's Peru, Problema y posibilidad (item 4735). A section on 
Peru, with a foreword by Grace McCann Morley, may also be consulted 



INTRODUCTION — PUERTO RICO-URUGUAY • 35 

in the catalog of the Golden Gate Exposition of 1939-1940 (item 3148). 
And finally, the writings of Cossio del Pomar (items 4739-4742) discuss 
the ideology of Indo- Americanism in reference to Mexico and Peru. 
Even the minor arts of today, however, are practically unknown, in 
comparison with those of Mexico or Guatemala (see items 59, 3107, 
4729, 4732). 

Puerto Rico 

The bibliography of the history of art in Puerto Rico is not an exten- 
sive one. Remaining a colony of Spain until the end of the nineteenth 
century, the island did not play a great role in colonial affairs,- nor 
experience the wave of nationalism which followed the emancipation of 
other Latin American countries. The best general text for our subject 
is the guidebook of the Puerto Rico Reconstruction Administration 
(item 575). In this will be found an essay on architecture, as well as 
excellent photographs and notes on buildings and monuments. 

At present, with the restoration of some of the colonial buildings, we 
are beginning to see how interesting this field may be in Puerto Rico. 
There have been various publications on the subject: an illustrated 
article on the Hospital de San Juan (item 2241), two serious studies of 
the cathedral of San Juan, by Balbuena de la Maza (item 2239) and 
E. T. Blanco (item 2240), and Adolf de Hostos' report of Las excava- 
ciones de Caparra (item 2240a). Important documents for four or five 
colonial buildings are given by Angulo Iniguez in his Pianos de monu- 
mentos arquitectonicos (item 625). Monteagudo's Album de oro (item 
574) is useful for its illustrations. 

In the same way, there have been few publications to inform us 
about the activities in art which make the contemporary scene inter- 
esting. The best information on this is the special number of the 
University of Puerto Rico Bulletin of December 1937, entitled Art in 
Review (item 573). Here are published reports of the recent exhibitions 
of contemporary art and data on the teaching of art ; there is also some 
information on the colonial painting of Puerto Rico. Only one mono- 
graph on a contemporary painter, Julio Tomas Martinez, appears in 
our bibliography (item 4770). 

Uruguay 

There are excellent publications on Uruguayan art, which show a 
country increasingly aware of its cultural tradition, but as yet we have no 
full length history of the subject. The best general survey is perhaps Juan 
Giuria's article in the Encidopedia italiana (item 580); the guide-book 
put out by the Touring Club Italiano (item 584) will also prove useful. 

For a variety of reasons, Uruguay is less richly stocked with colonial 
relics than some other South American countries. The patience and 
respect with which these have been studied are notable, however; 



36 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

attention should be called particularly to the role of the Sociedad 
Amigos de la Arqueologia in publishing such studies in their Revista. 
Thus Furlong Cardiff has given us an excellent monograph on the 
cathedral of Montevideo (items 2258, 2259), the portals of the Ciudadela 
and of the Casa de los Ejercicios have been studied by Silvio Geranio 
(items 2260, 2261), and various colonial towns' have been investigated, 
such as, Santo Domingo de Soriano and Maldonado (items 2250, 2251) 
by Horacio Arredondo, or San Carlos by Carlos Seijo (item 2266). 
Other valuable studies are La Colonia del Sacramento by Fernando 
Capurro (item 2243) and two papers on Uruguayan fortresses El fuerte 
de San Miguel by Buenaventura Caviglia (item 2252) and El fuerte de 
San Miguel (item 2257), and in El cerro de Montevideo y su fortaleza, 
1520-1935 (item 2255) photographs will be found, and sometimes plans 
and elevations, as in Cortes Arteaga's Las bovedas (item 2254). For a 
general survey of the period we have the dependable and richly detailed 
article by Juan Giuria, Arquitectura colonial (item 2262), and his 
Detalles tipicos de algunas iglesias y capillas uruguayas (item 2264), 
so valuable for its generalizations about construction and style in the 
colonial period. 

It should not be forgotten that Uruguay was originally a part of the 
Virreinato del Plata. Such publications as Torres Lanzas' Relacidn de 
mapas, pianos, etc. del virreinato de Buenos Aires (item 730) and Torre 
Revello's Adicion a la relacidn (item 728), as well as his Mapas y pianos 
refer entes al virreinato del Plata conservados en el Archivo general de 
Simancas (item 729) contain important plans and descriptive docu- 
ments. Jose Toribio Medina's La imprenta en el antiguo virreinato 
del Rio de la Plata (item 733) mentions early engravers of the Banda 
Oriental. Furlong Cardiff's study Los Jesuitas y la cultura rio-platense 
(item 691) touches upon Uruguayan Jesuit foundations as well as those 
of Paraguay. 

With the nineteenth century came a stream of travelers from Europe 
to the Atlantic coast of South America, where men like Frezier (items 
689, 690) had preceded them. Many of their publications are richly 
illustrated, notably the Escenas americanas of Palliere (item 2318) and 
E. E. Vidal's Picturesque Illustrations of Buenos Ayres and Montevideo 
(item 2323). Other valuable accounts, with illustrations, are given by 
Bougainville (item 2304) Caldcleugh (item 2306), Hadfield (item 2313) 
Arsene Isabelle (item 2315), and Ouseley (item 2317). The unpub- 
lished sketch-books of Juan Manuel Besnes e Irigoyen (item 2996) offers 
a similar delightful record of Uruguay in his time. Architecture, as 
such, is treated in the excellent biography of an Italian, Carlos Zucchi, 
by Perez Montero (item 2994), and in a group of photographs of the 
Uruguayan Gothic Revival (item 2993) which whet the appetite for 
more information on the nineteenth century. 

For studies of the great figures of art in nineteenth-century Uruguay 



INTRODUCTION — VENEZUELA • 37 

we are indebted to Jose Maria Fernandez Saldana (item 2988). In 
particular he has recovered the oeuvre and personality of Juan Manuel 
Blanes, the portraitist, genre and historical painter who ranks so high 
among the nineteenth-century painters of Latin America. His book 
which appeared in 1931 (3011), led the way to the great retrospective 
exhibit of Blanes' work in 1941, when the Uruguayan government 
published an exhaustive two-volume catalog (item 3024). An ad- 
mirable catalog with detailed photographs and biography came forth 
in connection with the showing of the exhibition in Buenos Aires also 
(item 3000). There have been a few studies of other artists, such as 
Eduardo Ferreira's Jose Miguel Palleja (item 3014), and Edmundo 
Prati's article on the Italian sculptor Jose Livi (item 3027), but the bulk 
of the bibliography will be found to deal with the great Blanes. 

Ernesto Laroche's Algunos pintores y escultores (item 581) shows how 
easily the transition from the nineteenth century to modern times took 
place in Uruguay. Of the transitional figures, Pedro Blanes Viale is 
outstanding, with the handsome catalog of his retrospective exhibition 
(item 4860). The most interesting painter, Pedro Figari, has a rela- 
tively large biography although there is as yet nothing like a definitive 
work. The essays by Herrera MacLean (item 4839), and Georges 
Pillement (item 4849) are the best available; several articles include 
color reproductions (items 4822, 4830, 4831, 4834), and the articles of 
the Parisian Revue de L'Amerique Latine constitute the richest source 
of information. At the present time Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Con- 
structivist group continues to be very prolific; the artist's autobiography 
(item 4859) and other writings (items 4792-4797), and the publications 
of the Asociacion de Arte Constructiva (items 4776-4777) are the best 
source of information. Studies of Torres-Garcia have also been written 
by Alfredo Caeeres (item 4823) and Ernesto Pinto (item 4850). 

The only publication of any importance on a contemporary sculptor 
is the monograph Jose Luis Zorrilla de San Martin (item 4868). Nor 
has architecture been suitably presented, although Uruguay ranks high 
in functional architecture of a utilitarian nature, such as clinics. One 
finds a suggestion of this in the catalog of an exposition for the First 
Pan American Congress of Architects (item 586) and in various studies 
of the Instituto de Urbanismo (items 585, 4800); but the achievements 
deserve more recognition. 

Venezuela 

The field of Venezuelan art is unusually well covered, period by 
period, not only in Spanish but also in English. Although no general 
work on the development of all the arts from colonial days to the present 
is yet available, there exists the excellent statement by Jose Nucete- 
Sardi, Notas sobre la pintura y la escultura (item 590), which furnishes 
a basis of approach to the fine arts. Those who seek examples of local

architecture of different styles and epochs will find them in the collection 
of photographs published by M. J. Gornes MacPherson, Venezuela 
grafica (item 589) though without any historical or descriptive text. 

For colonial architecture, Mario J. Buschiazzo's papers on Arqui- 
tectura colonial en Venezuela (items 2277-2279) are authoritative, though 
brief and selective, statements. Useful illustrations for the region of 
Caracas will be found in the Conquista y colonizacion de la provincia de 
los Caracas by Luis Oramas (item 2274) and in Roura Oxandaberro's 
Caracas colonial (item 2282). Cipriano de Utrera's monograph on 
Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes (item 2283) is from the point of view of 
documentary research a model for such studies, though the illustrations 
leave something to be desired. For sculpture of the eighteenth and 
nineteenth centuries a book by Landaeta Rosales on Estatuas y pilas 
antiguas de Caracas (item 2273) is full of valuable information. There 
are also a variety of early sources and published documents of which we 
might cite Mariano Marti's Relacion de la visita general (item 2273a), 
the Relaciones historicas de las misiones de padres Capuchinos (item 
2282a), and Angulo Iniguez's Pianos de monumentos arquitectonicos del 
Archivo de Indias (item 625). 

In the art of the nineteenth century the national school of painting 
has been the subject most studied. Besides Nucete-Sardi's work, J. 
Semprum's general survey, Painting in Venezuela (items 3040-3042), 
is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Enrique Planchart's 
essay on Don Martin Tobar y Tobar (item 3038) is the most detailed 
monograph on a painter; a shorter, though serious article is the Docu- 
mentos de Cristobal Rojas of Jose Antonio Hedderich (item 3035). 
Some glimpses of the appearance of the capital in the nineteenth century 
are given in Rivera's Illustrated Guide to Caracas of 1897 (item 3034). 

Unfortunately this cannot be matched by any interesting publication 
on architecture in Venezuela in the modern style, though Adolf o Dollero 
describes important buildings in his Cultura de Venezuela (item 4878). 
The section on Education in this bibliography (items 4882-4887) augurs 
well for the future of the arts, with the work of the Escuela de Artes 
Plasticas and the new Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. Articles in the 
Revista Nacional de Cultura are recommended for the study of con- 
temporary painters and sculptors. These vary from critical studies of 
such men as Pedro Angel Gonzalez, Reveron, Federico Brandt, and 
Manuel Cabre (items 4888-4890, 4892) to criticisms of the annual 
Salon and the exhibitions of the School of Fine Arts (items 4879, 4880, 
4881). Attention should also be called to the catalog of the Riverside 
Museum exhibition of 1940 (item 3078), and to the collections of the 
International Business Machines Corporation (items 3124-3126, 3096- 
3098, 3104) which include Venezuelan artists. The best general dis- 
cussion of the subject will be found in an article by Armando Lira, La 
Pintura contemporanea de Venezuela (item 4891). 



BIBLIOGRAPHY OF LATIN 
AMERICAN ART 

Note on the Arrangement of the Bibliography 

Periods 

The bibliography has been divided into three large periods of time: 
the Colonial Period, the Nineteenth Century, and the Contemporary 
Period. A preliminary section includes not only general works covering 
the whole history, but any texts which deal with two or more periods. 

1. Colonial Period. — This is defined as the period from the Conquest 
to the Independence in any country, except in the case of Cuba and 
Puerto Rico, where the "colonial" category is taken to extend up to 
1900. It specifically includes indigenous arts which persisted after the 
Conquest, such as the Mexican codices. 

2. Nineteenth Century. — It has been the general policy to assume that 
the "nineteenth century" began with the independence of any given 
country. It should be noted here that travel books are listed in the 
period in which they were written. Thus a nineteenth-century traveler's 
impressions of colonial buildings, or a nineteenth-century lithographer's 
record of the scene, will be found in this section. 

3. Contemporary Period. — This consists of all art of the twentieth 
century in the Latin American countries. In the case of an artist who 
lived over the turn of the century, we have ordinarily assigned him to 
the period in which he died. 

Geographical Divisions 

In each period, the bibliography is subdivided into a section for each 
of the countries. Three preliminary groupings take care of general 
works: Latin America, South America, and Central America and the West 
Indies. Thus, a book which discusses the character of colonial art in 
general throughout Lat n America, or an article pointing out resem- 
blances between the architecture of Peru and Mexico would be listed 
under Latin America. The section South America takes care of the 
many texts w T hich treat such regions as the Rio de la Plata or the Andes 
as a whole. Finally the category Central America and the West Indies 
includes general texts on the Central American republics, general texts 
on the islands, and the travel books which include a tour of both. 

In determining the country in which an artist will be listed, we have 
followed these rules: (1) natives of any Latin American country are 

39 



40 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

listed under that country, even when they have identified themselves 
with another (Carlos Merida, for example, is listed as a Guatemalan, 
not a Mexican); (2) artists from the United States, from Europe, or 
elsewhere, when they have identified themselves with the art of a Latin 
American country, are listed with the artists of that country (eg. Jean 
Chariot, a Frenchman, appears in the Mexican section). 

Techniques 

Under each country, in each period, the material is divided by subject 
into the following categories: Architecture, Education and Institutions, 
Graphic Arts, Minor Arts, Painting, Photography , and Sculpture. A 
preliminary section includes material which either treats the country 
in general (historical texts, travel books, or general discussions of art) 
or deals with several of the techniques. Thus a guide to a colonial 
building, which also discussed its paintings and furniture, would appear 
on this section. 

Education and Institutions. — In this category will be found publica- 
tions on schools and theories of art education, and also on the history 
and activities of museums, societies or government agencies in the field 
of art. Catalogs describing museum collections, however, will be found 
under the subject of the collection, i. e. colonial painting, contemporary 
sculpture, etc. These are always listed in the general index under the 
name of the institution, in addition. 

Minor Arts. — Here silver and other metal work, ceramics, the textile 
arts, furniture, and other applied arts are listed together. 

Notes on the Style 

In spite of the tradition and (one might suppose) the simplicity of the 
field of bibliography, the compiler finds himself faced with a certain 
number of decisions on questions of form. These questions increase 
when the bibliography includes several languages, and when it deals 
with a relatively unexplored subject. They are magnified in dealing 
with a language like Portuguese, where until very recently matters of 
nomenclature and even of orthography have been in a fluid state. Thus 
it has been necessary for the editors to assume unusual responsibilities 
in making decisions. All such definitions and rules are essentially 
arbitrary; the only important thing is that the reader should understand 
the writer's policy. For this reason we append here some general and 
some specific notes on our style. 

Our bibliographical form has been determined in the main by two 
models, the usage of the Library of Congress, and the Handbook of Latin 
American Studies, the outstanding bibliographical publication on Latin 
America. In certain matters particular to the field (such as the listing 
of Brazilian names) we have followed the policy of the Handbook, and 



NOTES ON STYLE • 41 

we have adopted their form of dealing with problems not met on Library 
of Congress cards (such as the listing of articles in periodicals). Rules 
which will help the general reader to locate his material, or which 
clarify what might otherwise appear confused or careless, are listed 
here. We must, however, deprecate the assumption that these rules 
have been followed inflexibly; they are signposts, not barriers. 

Orthography 

1. Capital letters have been omitted from all but the first word of 
the titles of books and of institutions in the bibliography, in accordance 
with Library of Congress usage. 

2. A single form of an author's name has been adopted, ordinarily 
that established by the Library of Congress. In the case of institutions 
(or of periodicals) which have changed their names, however, the publi- 
cation is listed under the name which appears in the imprint, with a 
cross-reference from the present name. 

3. In all comments, the rule has been to follow contemporary spelling 
and accentuation. The names of people, but not of places, retain 
their Spanish or Portuguese form in our English text. 

Listing of Authors and Artists 

1. All names of authors, with the exception of Spanish names, are 
listed under the final surname. This includes Portuguese names (con- 
trary to the usage of the Library of Congress). Spanish names are 
listed under the first surname. 

2. Titles of nobility, academic, ecclesiastical, political and other 
titles are omitted. The designations junior, filho, and nieto, custom- 
arily used as an integral part of the name in Brazil, here follow the name, 
according to the Library of Congress usage. 

3. A work by two authors is listed under the first author, but following 
his individual works. Second authors may be found in the general index. 

4. Library of Congress usage has been followed quite consistently in 
determining the author-heading under which a book will be listed. 
Catalogs and other publications of institutions, or of government 
agencies, are usually attributed to the institution rather than to the 
individual who edits the text. Otherwise the editor of a text may stand 
in lieu of author. Monographs on artists are listed in the bibliography 
under the author's name, or under the title (if the editor makes no 
textual contribution), not under the artist's name. The names of all 
authors, editors, and artists will be found in the general index, however. 

It might be pointed out that government institutions (as authors) 
appear under the name of the country, while museums, schools, uni- 
versities, and expositions usually appear under the name of the city, and 
the name of a society is followed by the city, if that seems necessary. 
This is the regular Library of Congress procedure. 



42 • A GUIDE TO THE ART OF LATIN AMERICA 

Listing of Titles 

1. Anonymous texts and certain others, notably picture books and 
anthologies, are listed under their titles. 

2. The name of the series in which a book has been issued follows the 
title. Series are also listed by title in the bibliography. 

3. Separate studies, or pertinent chapters, from books are usually 
listed independently, like articles from periodicals. The book and its 
author are identified in parentheses. 

Listing of the Imprint 

1. Place of publication, publisher, and date of publication are given 
in that order, for books. For periodicals, the place immediately follows 
the title of the periodical, and the date follows the volume and number. 

2. Terms such as "press", "publishing company" have been omitted, 
unless they are needed for clarity. 

3. The page numbering usually includes the illustrations. In a 
general text where not all illustrations are pertinent, they have not been 
counted, but merely indicated. 

Location 

1. The Library of Congress call-number is given whenever the item 
is available there. Books in the Library of Congress which have not 
been cataloged are identified by the symbol "DLC". 

2. Insofar as possible, the editors have indicated one or several 
libraries in which items not in the Library of Congress are available.

Descriptions of the principal cities and 
countryside of Mexico, Nicaragua, 
Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, 
and Chile, often in considerable detail. 
Mexico is treated the most fully. Illus- 
trations are engravings, from various

well-established, the ideas expressed 
are provocative, and it is one of the 
principal documents of European in-

A paper presented to the III Pan- 
american congress of architects, Bue- 
nos Aires, 1927. The question of 
adapting European architectural tra- 
dition to American problems is met 
by reference to the new German, 
French and Viennese architecture on 
the one hand, and to the theories of 



Ricardo Rojas on the other: without 
losing the rhythm of the modern move- 
ment in Europe the architect should 
improve himself by American ideals 
and models.

An interpretation of the views of an 
outstanding Argentine art historian on 
the question of modern American art 
in relation to that of Europe. Guido 
believes that much of the Spanish 
baroque was derived from Mexico and 
South America. He now feels that 
through the Mexican frescoes and 
North American skyscrapers America 
is once more influencing Europe, but 
this time on a grander scale. The 
author bases his statements on 4 works 
of Guido: La machinolatrie de Le Cor- 
busier, Catedrales y rascacielos (item 
50) , A merica f rente a Europa en el arte 
(item 12), and Concepto moderno de la

v. 3: Desde la pintura en Cordoba 

hasta las expresiones mas 
recientes; pintura, escultura,

il., 11 color. 

One of the few monumental works on 
the fine arts in Latin America. Argen- 
tine critics find the early periods 
sketchily treated, and the modern 
period viewed with prejudice; but not- 
withstanding, the breadth and scope of 
the work and its excellent illustrations 
make this the best place to study Ar- 
gentine painting. In addition to the 
full discussion of painting, v. 1 includes 
a chapter on the art of the Jesuit foun- 
dations (p. 69-93) and a section on 
architecture up to the present (p. 19- 
65), and the concluding section (v. 3, 
p. 379-437) deals with contemporary 
sculpture.

An introduction treats rapidly of 
colonial art all over Latin America; the 
author then moves quickly to the 19th 
century, where he discusses the work 



of native and of visiting artists, with 
excellent photographs. Of special 
value are the personal recollections and 
anecdotes of the writer, a prominent 
painter of the late 19th-century style.

Comments on colonial Hispanic art 
in the Americas are included in the

architecture and painting. Specifi- 
cally, there are references to architec- 
ture in Santo Domingo and Mexico, 
in the chapter on El gotico ocednico 
(v. 2), to Mexican archittcture, in 
the chapter on Plateresco y la reaction 
purista en America (v. 3), and refer- 
ences to the murals in the monastery 
of Actopan, as the sole information 
on Mexican colonial painting. This 
is a good example of the degree to 
which Spanish American art is still 
unknown in Spain itself. Further vol-

Feeling that there is a "eurindia

architecture of the Andes for clues as 
to our road in architecture. The de-

tive) are more specific than in his other 
writing; none can be substantiated, 
however, by reference to the very

author explores first Spanish and then 
pre-Columbian architecture and orna- 
ment, attempting to find the roots of 
architectural tradition in Andean 
South America. Stylistic analysis of 
the facade of San Lorenzo Potosi, the

A series of related essays, most of 
them lectures, here listed separately 
when they apply to our subject.. All 
focus on the meaning of Hispano-

A traditionalist argues that all the 
elements of a country's artistic past 
should be valued, that great art 
invariably comes from a fusion of 
cultures, and that the artist will find 
this inspiration only in his native 
environment, interpreted through his 
traditions. The illustrations are al- 
most all European and oriental 
architecture.

The drawings by the author consist of 
both plans and elevation and less for- 
mal sketches in pen and watercolor. 
The bulk of the material is from Salta 
and Cordoba, but there are some views 
taken in Buenos Aires and at the 
former Jesuit estancias. The text is 
more descriptive than critical, but 
there is an important document giving 
an inventory of the 18th-century Casa 
del virrey in Cordoba.

The author makes use of four manu-

to determine the facts of the history 
of its church. The source-material is 
more useful than the interpretation

fair catalog of the furnishings. Sty- 
listic discussion is notable for a 
refutation of Sartorio's theory of 
oriental influence.
